Then begin your hike, ?rst traveling along clear creeks cutting steep hills under rich forests. Open onto wide grasslands, then grab a ?rst-rate view from a ridge, down onto wetlands through which you will walk. Tour the wetlands, watching for wildlife. Backtrack across the grasslands before returning to Slate Run Farm. Make sure to allow time before or after your hike to tour the farm.
