This hike exudes history from first step to the last. Explore a former farm community via old roads that visit no fewer than a dozen homesites. Learn about 1800s subsistence farmers living on the slopes of Ricker Mountain. See home foundations, stone walls, cemeteries, barn sites, even one house still standing. Trailside interpretive information, along with the home vestiges, conveys a fascinating story of a way of life gone by.
