flatrock-1Flat Rock Cedar Glades and Barrens is one of the most ecologically significant natural areas and serves as an important research natural area. Naturalist Todd Crabtree will lead the tour and participants will get to observe numerous species of rare plants, as they hike along the trail. In addition to observing a variety of habitats, participants will see cedar glades, barrens, woods and sinkholes. Grasses and composites will be the focus, but many other plants will be evident – including a mix of fall foliage and flowers.

The 3.5-mile trail is long and not steep, but footwear with good ankle support is recommended. In case of inclement weather, the hike will be canceled. Participants should bring their own lunch and water and are asked to meet at the Flat Rock Cedar Glades and Barrens parking lot on Factory Road.
