Hambidge has a number of hiking trails among an incredible biodiversity of meadows, streams, waterfalls, native plants and wildflowers, and a cove forest. Nature Hikes take place most Third Saturdays, meeting at 10am at the Weave Shed Gallery.

Most of our hikes are led by Rita Rothmeier. Rita worked as a naturalist for 5 years at Black Rock Mountain State Park. She likes to think of herself as a guide, not an expert, facilitating and stimulating others to look closer at nature.

To reserve a space for a hike, contact Christine at center@hambidge.org. $5 minimum donation; free for members. 

Remember to wear long pants and sturdy closed-toe shoes for Summer hikes! Dress in layers, bring allergy meds/epi pen, water, a snack and a walking stick if desired. Most of our hikes are rain or shine, but if the weather looks particularly bad, check back here the morning of the hike for a weather update.
