Crossroads mapping out hiking trails 

Although the lack of additional snow recently prevented ski trails from remaining open in some parks and other venues in the area, Crossroads at Big Creek reminds people that all their paths are available for hiking. Coggin Herringa, the naturalist at Crossroads, says health experts agree that it is better to spend some time outside of the home to keep healthy. She notes that the Big Creek Preserve has a new set of maps for hikers to navigate the trails.



Crossroads at Big Creek is currently going through a restoration program to eliminate invasive species from the three properties being managed.   The 200-acre preserve has recreational opportunities at the Ida Bay, and Cove preserves along with Big Creek.  The Collins Learning Center and restrooms are closed to the public at this time, but trails are open with social distancing practiced.
