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, waterproof footwear. For safety reasons, traction cleats (Yaktrax, Crampon, etc.) or micro spikes (Kahtoola, Black Diamond, etc.) are highly recommended. Participants will not be permitted on the hike without proper gear.

Terrain: 2.0 miles, rugged, steep hills, slippery rocks, fallen logs, standing water

Age: Adult, children 12 years & over with adult
All minors must be accompanied by a participating adult.

Time: 11:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

The March 31 and April 21 hikes are currently sold out. To join a waitlist, please fill out our waitlist form with your contact info, date of the hike, and number of tickets you would like to hold.
