Couples Hike to Tea Falls
Ozark Natural Science Center
1905 Madison 1305, Huntsville, Arkansas 72740
Unplug and reconnect with your partner during a hike to the beautiful Tea Kettle falls. This hidden gem has no trail to follow and can be difficult to find on your own, so let our teacher naturalist lead you there. Along the way, we'll share our knowledge of the forest around us and do some winter birding. This is not an easy trail, this is a bushwhacking adventure so please only able-bodied people. Since this is a couple of days after Valentine's Day, it could be a great gift for your loved one if he/she enjoys a good hike!
$15/individual and $30/per couple (lunch included)
