Ijams Hiking club meets the first Saturday of each month and provides a way for hikers with moderate experience to safely enjoy the 1,000 forested acres of the Urban Wilderness with Ijams Naturalists. Hike a different trail each month while enjoying the amazing nature surrounding you in whatever way you wish. Head to the front to make good time with the hiking guide, enjoy a slower pace with an Ijams Naturalist to learn about plants and animals, do a little of both, or find your own way to enjoy the trails. At the end of the year reflect on the trails and enjoy your accomplishments with a club pot-luck.

This month, we meet at the Ijams visitors center to complete remaining trails there: Tower, Toll Creek to quarry for Pink Marble and Tharp Trace and return on Greenway. Approximately 3 miles. Tharp Trace does have significant elevation change and hikers should be prepared for a tough hike with sturdy boots and hiking poles.
