Richard will lead you down the Smokerise trail, over to the Sugar Tree Trail, down the Varnedoe Trail, and back up the Bill and Marion Certain trail. You’ll get to experience two overlooks that have made this preserve our most popular. Bring a sack lunch and be ready for a picnic with a view! (6 miles / 4 hours/ Difficult)
