Heritage of Hawk’s Bluff & Black History Hike

The Savannas Preserve State Park will host a self-guided hike featuring the Heritage of Hawk’s Bluff and local Black History on Saturday, February 27th, 2021. The event will provide community members an opportunity to explore the great outdoors through a short self-guided hike with interpretive signage showcasing the former African American Settlement of Tick Ridge. The trail will be open from 10 am to 4 pm. The Hike will take place along the Glass Lizard Trail near the Savannas Preserve State Park Environmental Education Center.

The Glass Lizard Trail is unpaved. We encourage closed-toed shoes that you do not mind getting a little muddy! Please observe local social distancing guidelines, such as staying 6 ft. away from others. Avoid overcrowding the trail by leaving space between groups.
