Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy invites you to join us for a wildflower walk at Sherwood Forest, a private residential community in Transylvania County on Thursday, May 22nd.
The wildflower walk will be about two hours long through a rich cove forest, stopping along the way to view and discuss flowers. We will be led by Sherwood Forest residents. For those who want to bring a lunch with them, we can eat at picnic tables near Robin Hood Barn; rest rooms are available at nearby Robin Hood Center.
Total cumulative hiking distance is 2.0 miles. This hike is rated as easy in difficulty, featuring a total elevation gain of 500 feet.
Participants are required to be in reasonable physical condition and capable of completing a two mile hike over uneven, forested terrain. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate pets on this hike. Hikers should wear sturdy walking shoes (no flip-flops), bring several layers of clothing in preparation for changing warm and cold temperatures, pack plenty of water as well as a snack/lunch to eat during the hike. Hikers who attend are required to participate in the entire duration of the hike. Hikers must be age 12 and up.
