The Taskinas Creek Trail is gaining a reputation as one of the most scenic and challenging hikes east of I-95. This three mile trail has a series of steep ravines that wind down to secluded bogs. There are also gorgeous overlooks of the Taskinas Creek Marsh which is home to various birds, fish, and mammals. Take the ranger guided hike through this interesting ecosystem. Bring water and a snack, but remember to pack in - pack out. Dogs on leashes are welcome.  With this Taskinas Trek, participants are invited to participate in the BioBlitz, a program sponsored by the National Geographic Society. The goal is to identify and record the various species found in local areas. As we stop along the trail, break out your pen & paper, or record your findings with a smart phone and upload using the iNaturalist app.
