Nature Walk at Herrontown Woods This Saturday

(Cross-posted at VeblenHouse.org) Come join a nature walk this Saturday, Nov. 30, at 1 pm along the newly renovated trails at Herrontown Woods. Beginning this past July, volunteers Kurt Tazelaar and Sally Curtis took it upon themselves to clear the trails, which had become largely impassible over the years due to storm damage and invasive shrubs. All of the original trails are now open.


Along the way, we'll visit the Veblen House and Cottage, where volunteers have recently uncovered the circle of stones called a "horse run",

hike the boulder fields of the Princeton Ridge, visit a quarry site, 

and look out across the valley from a newly rediscovered bluff. Dress warmly, and enjoy the light-filled forest. Kids welcome, and dogs on leashes.

Meet at the Herrontown Woods parking lot, down a deadend street across Snowden Lane from Smoyer Park (near where Snowden ends at Herrontown Road) (This map may help if you zoom out, using the +/_ in the lower right hand corner)
