There is no charge for the hike.
We usually need a couple weeks notice so we can coordinate with a couple other docents that might like to lead the hike.
You can call if you prefer:304-496-7359.
No dogs please. Rare plants border the narrow trail.
Restrooms: You are welcome to use the outhouse behind the Old Inn. If you prefer the flush variety, you might want to stop at the store in Capon Bridge or Slanesville. (Maybe pick up a cold drink or candy bar.)
Hike description: A short trail takes you across 3 private properties to the Preserve's trail. Here you are halfway up Ice Mt. You can take a mile roundtrip hike down to the cold vents, and/or you can hike a mile roundtrip to the scenic overlook. The trail is moderately difficult. The roughest of guess-timates might be 2 hours to see both. It's always good to wear comfortable shoes and bring drinking water.
Number in your group:? Groups usually are 15 or less.
When: Usually we arrange hikes 10 AM on a Saturday. You would probably meet your docent at the Old Inn, North River Mills.
We don't live at Ice Mt., and docents must travel to get there, so
please let your docent know if you are delayed.

Old Inn number: 496-9836. No one lives there, but the docent might be there near tour time.
