Experience the wonders of the woods on a guided hike through one of Holden Arboretum’s preserved natural areas.

We’ll descend into the ravine and follow the streambed as it cuts through bedrock dating back millions of years, keeping an eye out for unique geological features and fantastic natural beauty. This is a rigorous hike that requires sturdy footwear. Tall, waterproof boots are recommended. For safety reasons, traction cleats (Yaktrax, Crampon, etc.) or micro spikes (Kahtoola, Black Diamond, etc.) are also highly recommended. Participants will not be permitted on the hike without proper gear.

All minors must be accompanied by a participating adult.
