Got a friend you want to introduce to hiking and are eager to make an impression? The two things key to turning an aspiring hiker into an avid one are: 1) non-challenging terrain, and 2) scenery. Brumley North has both.
For starters, it’s likely the flattest 3.5 miles of hiking around. Some gentle inclines, but certainly no break-your-spirit climbs. As for scenery, there’s a bluff overlooking Stony Creek, several meadows, three farm ponds, a cedar forest, mature hardwoods, wetlands, an old cemetery — everything you could want in a Piedmont hike.
Our guide includes a trail map, detailed route description, video tour, details about the preserve (including how to get there), and an essay on the hiking experience.
