Green Friday 2019 Guided Historical Hike in Castle Rock State Park


Join us for an interesting tour of the history of the Waterman Gap area around the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century. We will meet at the parking lot at Waterman Gap (State Highways 9 and 236) at 11 am on Green Friday (November 29). The tour will be a walking tour of two different locations, so bring sturdy walking shoes and prepared to move to a different location by car. Tour will be led by ex-ranger Miles Standish.
