Hikes are free with no reservation needed
Rose Hill Plantation State Historic Site plans two different First Day Hikes in which you can participate. On Saturday, January 1, join the rangers at Rose Hill for a ½-mile historic nature trail walk or a 1-1/2-mile hike along the Tyger River trail. Along the way, there will be stops to talk about slavery, emancipation, and sharecropping. Both hikes will start at 10 a.m. at the brick kitchen house behind the mansion. The hikes are free, and no reservations are required. Please bring water and dress for the weather, wearing comfortable hiking shoes. Binoculars, insect repellant, and a camera are optional. For more information, call 427-5966. The park is located at 2677 Sardis Road in Union.
