Join the Rachel Carson Trails Conservancy for our annual spring hike! We'll follow the Rachel Carson Trail from the Harmar shelter in North Park to Hartwood Acres for approximately seven miles, rain or shine. Refreshments will be served at the end of the hike. Meet at 9:30 AM at the upper parking lot (NOT the mansion) in Hartwood Acres for instructions and car pooling. This event is FREE and open to everyone!

Wear sturdy shoes and appropriate attire for the weather. There will be some creek crossings and the water may be high this time of year.

Consider carrying some water and a small snack if you think you may need it.

Note! This is not a training hike. The leader will be stopping periodically to allow the group to coalesce. You're welcome to attend if you want to hike at a faster pace, but please understand that refreshments may not be available when you finish.
