DOGS ON WILD SOUTH HIKES:  Well-behaved, socialized, non-threatening dogs may come on Wild South hikes but must be leashed at all times.

No smoking, please, on our hikes.

Wild South hikes are free of charge because we want people to get out there and get to know their forest!  There will be a donation bucket on the picnic table.  All donations directly support our hikes and education program.  Thank you for your support!
