- The Laura Hare Nature Preserve at Downey Hill
- Saturday, March 23, 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Hike leader Anne Bornhorst, ambassador for Women Who Hike, says the terrain and seclusion make Downey Hill one of her favorite places to hike. Anne says “Sometimes you may be the only one there are Downey Hill to enjoy the peacefulness of the creeks and the sounds of the birds.” On this hike, you’ll be challenged by the ruggedness of the south and north loop trails, cross creeks, wander past a pond, and spot a few old wells that remind us of the past lives this area has experienced.
Sycamore hikes are free for members; for non-members, the suggested donation is $5 per person, $10 per family. Become a member at sycamorelandtrust.org/donte. Thank you!
