  • Details

    Hike through the old-growth forests and meadows from Ashland Nature Center to Coverdale Farm Preserve. Hike through the preserve, and back a different way. This is a fairly strenuous 4-mile hike, almost all of which is on private property. Other than one road crossing, we will walk through woodlands virtually the whole way from Ashland to Coverdale. The woods are mostly old-growth, with large oak, hickory and beech trees, and are some of the most pristine woodlands in the area. Hike through some of the restored meadows of Coverdale, and return through another wonderful woodland at Oversee Farm State Park, where we will pass a hidden pond and a historic home. There are no maintained trails through sections of the hike, so at times it could be a little rugged, which is part of the fun of exploration. There are short but steep hills, and some nice views of the Delaware Piedmont landscape. Led by Joe Sebastiani.

    We will email specific directions to the location prior to the event date.
