Today I led the first of what is to be a weekly nature hike here at Buckskin Mountain State Park. I would have to say I think it was an outstanding success. We had thirteen hikers, and all where enthusiastic, and very cooperative. We did the loop of the Buckskin Trail, stopping at the ten interpretive signs to talk about the plants and trees found here in the park. For most of the participants it was their first time to be on this trail. They all seemed to feel they got a good workout, and based on the questions they asked I would say they learned a lot.
