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, lobelia and goldenrod are just a few that should be in bloom.  Most 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.   Karis Day Pumphrey will be offering programs geared especially to children and novice outdoor explorers.  She is an environmental scientist who is most interested in educating others about the natural processes of our local environment. Please call to reserve your spot, as we try to keep our groups small to offer the best experience for everyone.  (859) 744-4888

  • November 18, 10 a.m. . Most of the flowers will be gone, so our focus will be more on the history of the area, and the ecology of the forest. Cooler temperatures will make more strenuous hikes less stressful, so this hike will explore the loop trail that allows long views to the north and south of the Preserve. Strenuous, with steep climbs, 3 hours in length. Bill Crankshaw will lead the hike.
    In case of inclement weather, hikes will be cancelled. Other hikes this fall and winter may have guest tour guides, including archaeologists, forest ecologists, and photographers. Check the website: lowerhowardscreek.org for more information on activities at the Preserve.
