Point of interests
This hike, the seventh in the series, will involve a walk around the perimeter of Woodlawn Public Cemetery, where a raccoon once fell out of a tree in the dark and landed on my head, and a passing look at Beth Jacob Cemetery beyond. We’ll also touch on Hidden Valley Park before hiking through Grindstone Creek marshland on the return path to the RBG building.
