Forest Walk, Gold Branch Loop Trail
Wed., Aug. 13, 6-8:30 p.m. 2014
Cost: A current $3 Daily Park Pass, $35 Annual Park Pass, or an America the Beautiful Pass is required!
From the venue:Join the National Park Service for a great summer loop hike through the oak, hickory, and beech forest and Rhododendron/Mountain Laurel thickets along the ridges above Bull Sluice Lake. This is an excellent area for viewing wildlife. One of the parkâ€™s very impressive small â€œbenchmarkâ€ streams will hopefully yield salamanders and other tiny organisms important to trout and the river ecosystem. We will focus on the wonderful array of wildflowers, ferns, and shrubs in a beautiful forest environment. Reservations are required.
