      The 2 Mile Walk is entirely paved, geared for a casual, shorter walk.

      The Active Older Adults’ Experience is a fun, 2 Mile Educational Trail Walk for those Active Older Adults 55 years of age and older who are looking for a low to moderate “in the woods” experience.  This is a guided walk, mainly off-road and on flat terrain.  Enjoy some time in the woods and learn about our environment.  A presentation will be given prior to the walk.

      Welcome to the Ridgewalk's most challenging trail! Push yourself or casually walk this terminator trail. It features steep, rocky, and sometimes wet sections, as well as significant climbs and descents of 800 feet or more.  The reward is the awesome beauty on a clear day while negotiating wild, remote and challenging footpaths that wind you slowly northeast to the finish line. Extra hydration is a must, so carry a bottle of water; but don't worry; 6 aid stations will be along the way!

Several climbs and descents take you looping around the hill before the final 1/2 mile descent to the finish.
