Pride Hikes: Arms Forest
September 10 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Co-hosted by Audubon Vermont, Pride Center of Vermont, Outright Vermont, and Burlington Parks Recreation and Waterfront.
Come out to celebrate Burlington’s Pride week with LGBTQIA++ hikers. We’ll explore Burlington’s Arms Forest located near the shores of Lake Champlain. Please note that the meeting location has changed – we will meet in the parking lot behind the North Avenue Alliance Church at 901 North Avenue.
The old forest landscape of the “Arms Grant” rewards visitors with rare natural communities and brims with clues of centuries of land use history. Visitors will find an extensive trail network lined with unusual plants, glimpses of deer and fox, and old farm roads shaded by rich canopies of centurion oaks. A hidden quarry even connects us to a Burlington that was once the national center of marble manufacturing. A rare gem in the necklace of Burlington’s open landscapes, this 30-acre park is located in the New North End’s largest area of contiguous undeveloped lands, nestled between Rock Point and the Intervale floodplain across North Avenue. – Burlington Parks, Recreation and Waterfront
