About 11,700 years ago the Pleistocene Epoch ended. The ice trapped inland finally melted. It flooded over the wide land bridge that brought Asians into North America. Archeologists now believe that a colony of ancient Native Americans, sometime between 18,000 and 12,000 years ago, settled at Deer Creek Hills! We will hike over their hunting grounds and discuss what we know about them. You will have a unique chance to personally examine stone tools found by archeologists nearby that have been dated to this period.
This outing will take you over a moderate 3-mile hike. Gates open at 8:45, hike out by 9:00, back by noon.
