Trail Ambassador Walks

Registration is recommended for all hikes so that participants can be informed of weather or other emergency cancellations. Unless otherwise specified, Trail Ambassador hikes may use rocky, rugged trails that may be wet and slippery. Wear sturdy shoes or boots with socks. Long pants are recommended for protection against occasional poison ivy and possible ticks. Bring water and a snack if desired. Unless otherwise noted, children over seven years old are welcome if accompanied by a responsible adult. Walks are cancelled in heavy rain. For more information or to register, contact Sarah Marley at marley@fow.org. For updates, go to www.fow.org.
