Big Hill Pond

jackson

April 30 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

Pink blooming azalea against blue sky at top and lake on the bottom
Azalea at Big Hill Pond SP

This hike will be moderate to difficult due to length and elevation changes. This hike will encompass a variety of upland, meadow and wetlands. Its high point is the 611 feet observation tower and its lowest point is around 380 feet. We will climb ridges, cross Dismal Swamp, follow lake shores and hopefully see a wide showing of azaleas. Please dress according to the weather and bring snacks, lunch and plenty of water. We plan to eat at “top of the River” after the hike. Please meet at Panera Bread in Jackson at 8:00 a.m. to carpool or at the trailhead at 9:00 a.m. Plese register with hike leader Howard Ropp by Thursday, April 28 (as he is camping and cell service may be limited). If you plan to camp, it is recommended to reserve a site asap.
