Clearing Hiking Tours

The Clearing Folk School is offering free, docent-led, interpretive hiking tours that cover the history, folklore and landscape of the school, its historic campus and its 128-acre property. 

The hikes last about two hours. They begin at the Jens Jensen Visitor Center at 1 pm on many Saturdays and Sundays through the end of October. Maps are also available for self-guided tours during weekend open-house hours. No advance registration is necessary. The trail terrain is rugged in places, so sturdy walking shoes are recommended.

Call 920.854.4088 or visit to learn more about these tours, weeklong classes and one- and two-day workshops.

The Clearing Folk School is located at 12171 Garrett Bay Road in Ellison Bay.
