Join RVC Trustee Joel McGreen for the October "Hike of the Month" through Beech Ridge Preserve. We will meet at trail head at 10:50 am for a 11:00 am hike. Sign up here.
There is a ½-mile hiking trail accessible at Belcher Road, just east of the intersection with Dry Road. The trail winds through the forest and over-top a stream bridge.
The 64-acre preserve sits at the headwaters of Belcher Creek, and hosts a mature deciduous hardwood forest with a large assemblage of mature and sapling American beech on sunny, south-facing slopes. Numerous mature oak and tulip poplar dominate the higher canopy, with evergreens including Eastern red cedar and hemlock.
