Blood Rock Ridge Loop Trail Hike

Saturday, May 18

 10:00 a.m. - 12:20 p.m.

Description: Join National Park Service Naturalist Jerry Hightower for a relatively leisurely hike along the river, across scenic Rottenwood Creek, and through the forest around Blood Rock Ridge. This is a beautiful opportunity to view Great Blue Herons fishing, hear the Belted Kingfisher's call, see signs of wildlife, and a bit of geology. Learn fascinating facts and a fable or two about the diverse and abundant wildlife. Enjoy great views of Long Island Shoals as you walk along the trails and learn the grim story of Lightning Rock. Along the trail, we will look for signs of wildlife and spring flowers. 

Facilities: Restrooms in the parking area

Difficulty: Moderately easy with a 100-meter steep section and climb over uneven rocks at Lightening Rock. These walks are slow, with numerous stops to discuss items of interest along the way. Note: This walk is not suitable for very young children.

Bring: Dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking on a forest trail. Bring water and snacks. Binoculars and a hand lens are recommended. 

Limit: 30 persons
