October 25, 2014 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Barnett Mountain Hike.
Join MPF member and Natural History Biologist Susan Farrington for a rugged hike to the top of Barnett Mountain on Rocky Creek Conservation Area in Shannon County near Eminence. Created one billion years ago by volcanic activity, Barnett Mountain is encircled just below its peak with igneous glades with robust prairie grasses and amazing views. This will be a steep off-trail, 1.5-mile hike up to the top, a 1-mile loop hike around the glades, and possible detours to see the fen or the dolomite glade in the area as well. Hike will be a minimum of 4.5 to 5 miles (4 to 5 hours, plus time to break; bring a sack lunch).
RSVP by October 21 to email@example.com or 314-402-3345.
