The days are getting shorter, so cooler temperatures will also be here. Fall flowers will be the focus of these hikes: fall asters, sunflowers, wing stem, ironweed, and goldenrod are just a few that should be in bloom. All hikes, unless noted, will be moderately strenuous, 3 hours in length, and will meet at the main entrance to the Preserve on Athens-Boonesboro Road. If you are using a GPS to locate the Preserve, our address is 1945 Athens-Boonesboro Road, Winchester, Ky. Please call to reserve your spot, as we try to keep our groups small to offer the best experience for everyone. (859) 744-4888
