DLAMN- native plant identification hike
This hike is about 2.8 miles in length and is “moderate” in difficulty.There is an elevation change of 400 feet. You will need to bring a light lunch/snack, water, insect repellant and a hiking stick or pole. This is a very interesting hike over Blakely Mountain with many of the trees and flowers we have already seen plus some new ones, e.g. Rusty Blackhaw, French-Mulberry, Post Oak, Blackjack Oak, Trillium, and Bird’s Foot Violet. The second half of the hike goes thru an old growth forest that is beautiful!
