Valley History Explorer Hike #8: North Fork (Grove Stone)

October 9 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

This 3-mile, moderate hike will explore part of Grove Stone Quarry overlooking the North Fork Valley. This moderate trail is part of the network of roads that trucks drive through the quarry. Jason Conner, who works for the quarry, will share the geology of the region.

Difficulty:  Moderate, 3 miles

This event is sold out for 2021. The museum hikes committee is taking a waitlist for individual hikes and will attempt to add hikers as spots are available. Please direct any inquiries to svmhikes@gmail.com. 

Updated Coronavirus Protocol:

Due to the very high percentage of fully vaccinated people on our hikes and the relaxed COVID guidelines, we will be returning to our customary hike route and transportation plans. We will now be doing one-way hikes that will require a short carpool/driver shuttle system. People in the shuttle cars should mask up and leave some windows open. **If you are uncomfortable with these arrangements, please let the hike committee know at svmhikes@gmail.com and your credits will be reserved for future hikes.** 

We will observe the following hiking procedures due to COVID:

    • Please bring a mask to the event to use during carpooling.
    • No one who is sick or running a fever should attend
    • If not vaccinated, masks should be worn in all group settings like sign-in and congregation
      times.
    • Social distancing while on the trails is recommended.
