Daffodil Tour of Hoggard Trail in Buzzard’s Roost Preserve

April 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$5.00 – $15.00

The Hoggard Trail in Ross County’s Buzzard’s Roost Preserve has both natural and historical scenery.  Along with the native Spring Beauties, Trout Lilies, Wintergreen, and Pawpaw, are remnants of 200 years of human alterations: a public road, house ruins, mico-quarries, gullied former fields, pine plantations, a graveyard…and daffodils, which do not plant themselves.

Join me 2 to 4pm Sunday, April 11th,* for a walking tour of the last 300 million years of geology and history as spring flowers should be in full riot on the moderate terrain and abandoned farms atop rolling sandstone hilltops and shale slopes.

It will be $10 for adults, $5 for students, and $15 for families (three or more family members). Pay ‘at the door’ at the with cash or check. Park where you can and gather at the start of the Hoggard Trail at the main gate to Buzzard’s Roost.

The practical limit on the tour is about 20 people as we walk to the Hoggard ruins and cemetery and back, looking at some features that are now closed to the public.

First come first served, and reservations are not required – but you can contact me to be at the top of the attendance list and so I can let you know if plans change.

Message me through FB, email ihs@horizonview.net, or call 740 / 775-4036.  You can call or text my cell phone CLOSE TO TOUR TIME at 740 / 771-8574.

Find a showcase of what to see from last spring on my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=2683959698501457&id=1383613805202726 …or from this spring: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=2992998587597565&id=1383613805202726

If it’s too cold or windy for a medium jacket or too rainy  to go without an umbrella, I will notify all who have made a reservation of the switch to 2-4pm Saturday, April 17th.  *Like ‘Daffodil Tour 1’ on March 28th!

Dress for the weather and outdoor conditions on level to rolling earthen trails in woodland with small rocks and roots in the trail.  And, your health is your responsibility!
