Maple, willow, cottonwood, and mature alder bring abundant color to the season. This is one of the most deciduous areas of our forest, a real treat to explore in the fall. Expect a wide variety of mushrooms along the way. Meet at the Heart Lake parking lot.

About the Friends

The Friends of the Forest is a non-profit citizens organization dedicated to the preservation of the ACFL through education, outreach, and stewardship. We first formed in 1986 to "preserve, protect, and enjoy" our community forest. Our group was instrumental in the successful effort to halt revenue logging in the ACFL, and essential to the creation and promotion of a system to provide long term legal preservation of the forest.  We welcome all who share in our mission.
