Agnes Flanagan Chapel

Tryon Creek State park is right near campus, and offers over 8 miles hiking trails (including 3 miles of paved trail) through a forest of Western Redcedar, Douglas Fir, and Big Leaf Maple trees cloaked in moss. The lush understory includes 9 different species of Ferns, delicate Trillium flowers, and even native Salmonberries and Huckleberries.

We’ll depart directly from campus to hike for about 2 hours, depending on the pace and preferences of the group. This all-ability hike will follow along one of Tyron Creek State Park’s paved trails. This trail is a more accessible terrain that gives great views of the beautiful nature Tryon has to offer. For a low-key exploration of Tryon Creek sign-up for this trip! The nature center and all facilities are closed, so be sure to bring what you’ll need.

No Experience Necessary! This all-ability trip will be a fun and safe way to get off campus with your “pod,” or sign up on your own to meet new people!

Covid-19 Mitigation:

  • Consider signing up with your “pod” mates
  • Masks and 6ft distancing required
  • Groups capped at 10 people (including leaders)

Meeting Place:
We’ll depart from in front of the Agnes Flanagan Chapel, on the side that faces towards Templeton. Look for the “College Outdoors” sign.
