The joy of spending time in nature is rejuvenating. And if you know how to look, the beauty of the natural world can also provide you with a lot of information. Pick up some useful cloud reading tips from Pat Fisher, HCH President and hike leader, before an easy-going adventure into the natural world.
Located just north of Westville, this park was established in 1992 and consists of 96 acres donated by Gayle and Lucille Bluhm. The park boasts a healthy wildflower population in both woodland and restored prairie habitat. Bluhm offers over 8 miles of multiple use trails including hiking, biking, mountain biking, horse and cross-country skiing. It also has a bark park, picnicking, shelter rental and a playground.
HCH recently purchased an All-Terrain Rollator which may be reserved for use on our hikes. Reservations are made by Emailing email@example.com on a first-come first-served basis.
Wear long pants (preferably tucked-in), a sun hat, sturdy shoes or boots and insect repellent and bring plenty of water. Depending on the weather, there may be some muddy areas. HCH hikers observe federal and state guidelines so mask wearing is optional.
