Hike: Monte Sano Nature Preserve
March 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
(Difficult / 2 hours / 2.5 miles) This hike will travel over trails that don’t get nearly as much traffic as those on the north end of Monte Sano Nature Preserve. You’ll start at Three Caves Trailhead and begin by climbing Waterline Trail. This trail is what gives the hike its “difficult” rating because, well, it’s a straight trail that goes directly uphill – no switchbacks. The climb is worth it, though, as highlights of this hike include waterfalls on Mountain Brook, the spring at the intersection of Young-Kennedy and Wagon Trail, and Dry Falls. Shallow sea fossils are an additional interesting aspect of the trails.
