Wine and Cheese Hike

Wine and Cheese Hike

The season’s second Wine and Cheese hike, here at Ruffner Mountain! Gather at our Tree House where a Ruffner staff member will lead you on a hike through the woods of Ruffner Mountain, guiding you to the spectacular Hawk’s View Overlook in time for sunset.  Once at the overlook we’ll sip select wines and nibble on gourmet cheeses and watch the city’s light transform.  An added bonus for May’s hike, we’ll descend the mountain under a full moon!  A moderate hike with light backpack, covering about three miles round trip.
