John Burroughs Nature Sanctuary / 8am

200 acre sanctuary is where literary naturalist John Burroughs built his rustic cabin retreat Slabsides in 1895.

There is a four and a half mile network of trails, including five that are newly constructed.  They are rated easy to moderate and take you among rocky ridges, deep forests, and onto a peninsula in a stunning two-acre pond enabling you to experience the same forest, geologic formations, waterfalls, fern valleys, wildflowers, birds, and wildlife that Burroughs reveled in over a hundred years ago.  Our visit here will include a timely passage from Burroughs by his great granddaughter Joan as well.
