Calendar of events

  • Tram to Trails

    The tram will depart from the tram circle and visitors will hear the regular tram narration to Big Rock.  At the visitor station, you will disembark and walk with a docent along the Woodland Trail for 30 minutes, then get back on the tram and finish the regular tram narration and return to the tram circle.  Woodland Trail highlights include a hilly, shaded woodland trail.  It is often good for birding.
