Tuesday, April 4 — Reflection Riding: Various trails forming a loop, 3 – 5 miles, easy. Reflection Riding is an inspiring combination of park, meadows, swamps, nature center, wildlife rehabilitation, and untamed woods. Our hike will start at the main parking lot and make a loop around the central part of Reflection Riding. Sights include Chief Walking Stick cabin, Resurrection Fern Rock, a pavilion, the Gazebo, millstones, and Oliver Freeman’s Hollow, to say nothing of other attention grabbers such as the Cherokee Eye. We’ll also be keeping an eye out for the invasive privet plant (scrawny and ugly), along with red wolves, lions, tigers, and bears. Check the weather forecast and put on appropriate layers; wear hiking shoes or boots; bring snacks and/or lunch along with more water than you think you need; and gather up hiking poles, rain jacket, sunscreen, flashlight/headlamp, and insect repellent as needed. Meet at the Reflection Riding parking lot by 8:30 am ET. Please register with hike leader Will Latham, (704) 365-8889.
