I am leading a free guided walk to historic Franklin Clove on Saturday, Oct. 29 for the Fyke Nature Association. (I am also doing a free talk about the clove and summit of High Mountain at the Fyke meeting on Friday night, Oct. 28.)
It's an amazing place, filled with great history and geology lessons. Prehistoric humans lived there in rock shelters thousands of years ago. The Lenape wintered here in the late 1600s.
And the clove itself is a narrow ravine made of basalt. We'll also visit a nearby waterfall.
Note: It is a short walk -- well under two miles total -- but you will have to climb over a fallen tree trunk or two (see photo at right) and deal with some very rocky trails. Folks with balance issues may find it challenging.
Due to the nature if the walk (narrow trails) and a lack of parking, the walk is limited to the first 16 folks who register, and there are very few spots remaining. We may be able to fit more folks if we car pool. You must rsvp.
Details on talk and walk follow.
