Hike with Dr. Bill Schaupp, entomologist emeritus with the USDA Forest Service’s Forest Health Protection, to observe and discuss the incredible insects that live on or flutter by the Table Rocks. On this hike, you will gain a deeper appreciation for how insects live and their essential role in the environment. The hike is free, but registration is required: https://bug-hike-2019.eventbrite.com.
Hikers will meet at the trailhead for a 2.5–4.5 mile round trip hike up 800 feet along a moderate grade trail. Participants should dress for the weather and terrain and bring water and snacks since hikes to the top may last 3 to 4 hours. Restrooms are available only at the trailhead; there is no drinking water. Due to limited parking at the trailhead, carpooling is encouraged. To help protect this special place, dogs and vehicles are not allowed on the trail.
