We will start at the trail head and venture down a path that will lead us off into the base of the rocks. Once at the base of the rocks, we will explore the various nooks, crannies, and spires of Little Jerusalem's Niobrara chalk formations. Along the way, learn about the grasses, forbs, mammals, reptiles, insects, geology, and other great things that nature presents to us. Be prepared for rough hiking, uneven terrain, ups and downs, and scrambling thru grass and brush. No set path is followed! So be ready for an adventure! It is an intermediate level hike/terrain. We hike at a moderate pace with lots of stop and go to learn, talk, ask questions, and take photos. Wear boots, bring water, a snack and a hiking stick!  

**Hikes will be cancelled by inclement weather!** If it is snowing, blizzarding, freezing rain, raining, lightning, or any other unsafe weather brought on by Mother Nature, all activities will be canceled at Little Jerusalem. Scott City and Oakley are the closest towns to search for weather on National Weather Service.
