Event description

Description

Why is Brooker Creek Preserve “Our Wildest Place?” Nearly 9,000 acres of undeveloped land in our crowded county is a real treasure. Discover a bit of our native habitats and the plants and animals that call the preserve home. This hike is .75 mi, an easy stroll.

All ages are welcome. Children under the ages of 16 must be accompanied by an adult and those younger than 6 may find this hike challenging.

Guided Hike Information
Volunteer Hike Guides will meet participants in the lobby of the Education Center 10 minutes before the scheduled start time. We strongly suggest all hikers visit the restroom before we begin as there are no facilities along the trail.

  • Guided hikes are under a mile in length, much of which is on unimproved, uneven sandy trails.
  • Hikes take about two (2) hours to complete.
  • Please wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes, sneakers or boots.
  • Insect repellent (bug spray) is strongly recommended in summer months.
  • Bring plenty of drinking water and a snack.
  • A hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen are also recommended.
  • Pets are not permitted.
  • No smoking is allowed.
  • Trained volunteers will guide the hike.
