Limestone Rise Walk

A gem of a preserve with a variety of habitats, a profusion of wildflowers and ferns, and excellent birding, as well as fossiferous limestone outcroppings and solution channels. Ed Kautz, leader. Directions: Take Rt. 890 to the Rt. 146 exit, continue on Rt. 146 southwest across Rt. 20 into Altamont. Make a sharp right turn onto Maple Ave to stay on Rt. 146 in Altamont, followed shortly by a sharp left onto Western Ave.; continue on Rt. 146 5.7 miles to Nash Rd. on right. This is a gravel road, and the road sign may be missing. It is the first road after Knox Cave Rd., and there is a Preserve sign at the corner.
