Join Steven and Patrick for an exploration of the beautiful 1000 acre Bohemia Ecological Preserve! We'll hike through hardwood conifer forests, oak woodlands and savannah grasslands, & enjoy our BYO picnic lunches at “The Top of the World". We'll be joined by two experts who will share with us about the plant life we see along the way. This hike is geared toward adults who can hike 5 miles on a fairly strenuous trail.
Note on timing: We will do our best to get back to our vehicles by 1:00 pm. However, it is possible we will get back later than intended. If you have plans directly after this hike that you cannot miss this may not be the outing for you. Early departures cannot be accommodated. Thank you for your understanding
