Heart Mountain Hike Cancelled, Preserve Still to Open
Written by Andrew-Rossi on June 4, 2020
The Heart Mountain Ranch Preserve hike that was scheduled for Saturday. June 13th is now cancelled.
The Nature Conservancy in Wyoming regrets the announcement but due to health concerns relating to COVID-19 they believe that this is the most efficient way to ensure safety of the community.
The event will hope to be rescheduled but it will all depend on the virus and its growth around the area. Even though the hike is cancelled, the preserve will still be open beginning Sunday, June 7th. The only restrictions in place will be that the restrooms, office and interpretive cabin will remain closed.
The Heart Mountain Ranch Preserve asks that people would follow these practices when visiting the preserve:
- Support social distancing by giving people not in your party at least 6 feet of separation.
- Avoid or minimize contact with high-touch surfaces, including handrails and interpretive signs; practice good hygiene and use hand sanitizer.
- Leave no trace. Please take trash and other personal items with you when you leave the preserve.
- Note that restrooms will not be available.
- If you are feeling sick, visit us another time!
- Please remember that no dogs are allowed on the preserve.
- Be bear aware: Travel in groups of 3 or more, carry bear spray and know how to use it and make noise while on the trail.
