  • Gari Melchers Home and Studio Woodland Hikes

    Dec 29, 2014 Woodland Hike

    Gari Melchers Home and Studio at Belmont will offer free guided nature hikes every last Sunday of the month. Tours will start outside the Museum Shop at 2 pm. Members of the Central Rappahannock Chapter of the Virginia Master Naturalist program will lead tours of the woods and fields at Belmont. The walk will cover about one mile of trails and will touch on the historic ruins that illustrate Belmont’s past. Volunteer guides will also discuss the progress of the woods from pasture land to impenetrable wilderness to the maturing woodlands seen today. Belmont’s trails cover steep and rough terrain and may be muddy at times, so sturdy footwear is recommended. Tours will take place in rain, snow or shine. No reservations are necessary. For more information contact Beate Jensen at 540-654-1839.
