Hike the Seven Tubs Nature Area

Posted on: July 20, 2014

Led by Paula Fall and Brian Gettig, this 3.25 mile hike will lead you through the shade of deep forest and along the cool waters of the “tubs”. Brian and Paula will present a history of the nature area, explain the ice age creation of the tubs, and while hiking identify plant life, mushrooms and animals that are native to the nature area. If blueberries are still in abundance, an optional side trip for picking is possible.

Time: The hike will start at 10:00am and last approximately 2 hours. (add an additional hour for optional blueberry picking)
Length/Difficulty: 3.25 mile loop. Short but difficult due to rocks, roots and uneven terrain. There are some short steep climbs as well.
Equipment: Water, lunch, snacks and sturdy footwear are a must. There are a few areas that can be steep and slick so boots or trail shoes with aggresssive tread are recommended. Hiking poles may be helpful if you wish to bring them. Insect repellent if desired. If blueberries are still in season, a container for picking is necessary.
This hike is limited to 20 people.
