Our hike will follow parts of Nature Creek Trail and Whippoorwill Lake Trail, and return to the starting point along the paved bicycle path for a total walking distance of around four miles. If you want to stay for lunch, there will also be time available for a visit to some of the Garden's attractions,  or to walk on another trail, since closing time is 5 PM. It is better to plan having lunch at a restaurant, since it may be too chilly for a picnic. This event will not be cancelled in case of rain, since there is plenty to do indoors.

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
Water and good hiking shoes or sneakers.
