About the Event

$36. Long hike: 8½ mi., 900 ft. elevation gain. Moderate hike: 7 mi., 500 ft. ascent for Calvert Cliffs. The walk at the Nature Center adds about a mile.

The cliffs, which contain a treasure trove of fossils, is now off limits for prospecting, but hikers can keep sharks teeth and shells found on the beaches. Depending on time availability, hikers may also stroll along the quarter mile boardwalk of the Battle Creek Cypress Swamp’s ecological sanctuary, which includes the northernmost, naturally-occurring stand of bald cypress trees in America. There will be a good beach towards the end of the hike for swimming.
