We will hike the main trail and the Black Creek and Todd Bordes Meadowland Side Trails north of Limehouse to 5th Line and back. Along the way we will pass the remains of an old mill on Black Creek, lime kilns, and a restored powder magazine. We will hike along the edge of fields, through forest and meadowland, the highlight being the rock fissures and crevices around the ‘Hole-in-the-Wall’ ladders.
We will stop for water breaks along the way and a longer snack / lunch break later in the hike. Bring plenty of water, lunch, sunscreen, and bug repellent. Hiking boots required, please dress appropriately for weather conditions.
Please note there is warning about high tick activity in the area, please take precautions - Tick repellent, long pants and sleeves, pants tucked into socks or gators.
