First Saturday Hikes at Brumley Forest Nature Preserve

Mystery Token Hike with TB&C Ambassador at Brumley Forest Nature Preserve
First Saturdays, April through June
Brumley Forest Nature Preserve, Chapel Hill, NC


We'll hike 4-5 miles on serene trails through hardwood forest and meadows at a relatively fast pace, joining all the new life bursting with energy during the spring. Three-quarters of the way through our hike, we'll stop at some tables to show-and-tell our mystery tokens and stories with a tranquil pond in the background.

You are invited to bring something that is associated with your travels or outdoor adventures (past or future), is special to you, and fits in your pocket. It can be an object, a poem, a song, etc. In the spirit of fun and suspense, do not share or reveal before we reach the pond. Bringing something is optional. You are welcome to just listen or sit by/circle around the pond which has cut grass along its perimeter courtesy of the Triangle Land Conservancy.

Although the trails are well maintained, there will be dirt, roots, and rocks so sturdy closed-toed shoes are highly recommended. We'll meet at the large parking lot near the information kiosk, 3055 New Hope Church Road. No Dogs. Rain cancels.

This hike is offered as part of the Townsend Bertram and Company's community events.
