Holden Arboretum

Grade 7- College

$10.00 per student. One free adult per five students, additional adults are $10.00.

This unique area was designated in 1968 by the U.S. Department of Interior as a National Natural Landmark. Stebbins Gulch is a ravine system where the exposed bedrock is easily observed and dates back to the Devonian period. Students hike down to Stebbins Creek, and as they walk up this tributary of the East Branch of the Chagrin River, they will explore four sedimentary rock formations, learn how they formed and what unique plant communities they support. Waterfalls, looming cliffs of sandstone, and wet feet are all part of the experience.

This program requires walking for long distances over uneven terrain and in wet, muddy conditions. Tour takes about three hours and is classified as difficult -3 miles.
