End Date: 3/17/2014End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description
Wildflowers will be the focus of five guided hikes this spring at Charlestown State Park.

All hikes begin at 2 p.m. and will be led by volunteer naturalist Jean Merritt. They are:

— April 12 on Trail 1: Meet at the Trail 1 parking lot for a 2.4-mile hike past limestone outcroppings.

— April 19 on Trail 6: Meet by the boat ramp for a 2.3-mile rugged hike past lime kilns and the old Charlestown Landing in search of spring ephemerals. The hike will also offer a shorter, easier option.

— April 26 on Trail 5: Meet at the Trail 5 overflow parking lot for a 1.8-mile hike to an overlook on Fourteenmile Creek in search of wild hyacinth and rue anemone.

— May 3 on Trail 2: Meet at the Trail 2 parking lot for a moderate, 1.4–mile hike past cascading waterfalls, wildflowers and ferns.

— May 10 on Trail 4: Meet at the Trails 3 and 4 parking lot for a rugged hike through mixed hardwoods with views of Fourteenmile Creek in search of later ephemerals and ferns.

The entrance fee is $5 for in-state vehicles and $7 for out-of-state vehicles. Annual park passes are available also.
