Hike through Fairmount Falls Park to hidden gem


SHE IS SHOWING IT OFF. ALEX: WE HAVE ALREADY MADE IT
THROUGH THE GATE, WHICH YOU HAVE
TO HAVE THE ACCESS CODE TO GET
TO. STILL A LITTLE DARK TO SEE MUCH. THE SUN IS ON ITS WAY UP. HOW CAN PEOPLE GET THIS GATE
CODE? WHEN THEY SEE THIS WHEN THE SUN
COMES UP, THEY ARE GOING TO WANT
TO CALL.>>THEY CAN CALL JEFFERSON
MEMORIAL FOREST AND PROVIDE
INFORMATION ABOUT THEIR VEHICLE
WE REQUEST THEY GIVE 24 HOUR
NOTICE TO VISIT.>>WHEN THEY COME, WHERE WE ARE
RIGHT NOW, THIS IS THE JEWEL OF
THE HIKE. TELL ME ABOUT THE WHOLE
EXPERIENCE WHEN THEY ARE ABLE TO
GET TO THE PARKING LOT.>>I WOULD SUGGEST YOU MAKE IT A
LEISURELY HIKE. THERE IS SO MUCH TO SEE ALONG
THE PATH. WE ARE THE WATERFALL, WHICH IS
NEAR THE BEGINNING OF THE PATH. THE PATH DOES GO ON FOR A GOOD
DISTANCE. WHEN YOU REACH THE END, THERE IS
A CIRCLE WHERE YOU TURN AROUND. YOU SEE A LOT OF THE DIFFERENT
ELEVATIONS. A LOT OF ROCK FORMATIONS. A LOT OF DIVERSITY OF THE PLANTS
AND TREES. YOU CAN SEE ALL KINDS OF PLANTS
AND BUGS. IT IS VERY INTERESTING.>>WHEN PEOPLE COME, IT IS A
LEISURELY HIKE, SO THEY DON’T
HAVE TO BE REPAIRED FOR ANYTHING
TO — HAVE TO BE PREPARED FOR
ANYTHING TOO INTENSE. THEY CAN ALSO VOLUNTEER. WE HAVE GABBY, THE COORDINATOR. TELL ME HOW PEOPLE CAN GET
INVOLVED. A KIND OF STUFF WOULD BE DOING?>>A LOT OF THE STUFF WOULD BE
PICKING UP LITTER AND MAKING
SURE THE TRAIL STAYS CLEAN AND
WALKABLE. THERE IS A WAY TO REPORT TRAIL
PROBLEMS WE ARE WORKING ON RIGHT
NOW. HOPEFULLY WITHIN THE NEXT FEW
MONTHS, WE WILL HAVE THAT UP AND
GOING. PEOPLE CAN LET US KNOW IF THERE
IS SOMETHING WRONG. IF YOU WANT TO VOLUNTEER, PLEASE
GO TO JEFFERSON MEMORIAL
FOREST’S WEBSITE. SUBMIT AN APPLICATION.
