Description

This is a walk that "fills my heart with joy". We follow the Oliver Creek west as it tumbles along. Then the views of the Escarpment as the main trail rises. Lunch at a restful nook along Oliver Creek.  After lunch, we walk the main trail and the Enchanted Forest Side Trail, observing the forest. Return via the Moss Haven Side Trail with its sensitive natural areas, main trail and Oliver Creek Side Trail. Note: we will observe silence during our walk with plenty of time for conversation before and after the walk and during our lunch break.  - after just 10 minutes quietly absorbing nature, the body responds positively. Please bring water and lunch.
