Docent-Led Hiking Tours Begin at The Clearing Folk School

The Clearing Folk School is again offering free, docent-led, interpretive hiking tours that cover the 86-year history, folklore and landscape of the school and its 128-acre property; and visit the historic campus area of the property. 

The hikes last about two hours. They begin at the Jens Jensen Visitor Center, 12171 Garrett Bay Road in Ellison Bay, at 1 pm on many Saturdays and Sundays, May 1 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. 

Social distancing is expected as much as possible; masks will be required in all indoor spaces; and disposable masks and hand sanitizer will be available. Anyone experiencing COVID-19-related symptoms should please stay home.
