This Ramble will follow the Painter Brothers Trail (Red Blazes). This 2.2-mile walk will begin with meadows, bluebirds, and tree collections, then into woodland with a stop at Indian Rock to view the beautiful vista and ponder this mystical rock’s purpose. We’ll continue on, viewing some of the highest elevations of Tyler and the vistas below. We will travel the route so that the steepest parts are downhill. This Ramble involves a moderate amount of hiking on rocky terrain and two stream crossings.

There’s more to discover in Tyler’s 650 acres. Join Dr. Richard Brenner for a walk through the various eco-communities at Tyler. From seasonal wonders, living fossils, meadows, watery locations, geological treasures, conservation areas, and unexpected wildlife, Richard will expertly guide you to prime areas for an experience you will remember. Expertise from others will often be on hand for a more in-depth exploration. These rambles are for those who have a love for nature, exploring, and learning. While a description of each ramble is posted in advance, we reserve the right to make last-minute changes, including adjustments for weather and trail conditions. Bring your reusable water bottle and dress for the weather, including sturdy shoes.
