Event Location

This event will take place in the central area of the park. Directions and exact location will be emailed to you after registering.

The lot is paved with limited-mobility parking spots and visitors follow paved pathways to the shelter. The shelter has a water fountain and restrooms with flush toilets. The guided hike will be on a well-established NPS trail with uneven terrain and small inclines, including two sets of steps. This trail is unpaved and is not wheelchair accessible.

COVID Safety Guidelines

At this time, while community levels of COVID-19 are low, you are not required to wear a mask at Conservancy events. We ask that you still respect personal space and understand that some individuals may choose to wear a mask for personal reasons. If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID, please stay home. We will continue to monitor community levels using the CDC’s new tool and may require masks again if transmission rates go up.

***If you or someone in your group have a compromised immune system and need our staff to wear masks or use additional PPE, please contact us and we will arrange appropriate accommodations.***
