The plan is to hike the Talus Rocks loop trail, aka the Cave Trail. We'll go at a relatively slow pace, with occasional stops to see the mosses and ferns and all those evergreen plants that make up our lowland forest. A couple short branches from the trail lead to the "caves", always interesting even in the rain. Trip goes rain or shine so umbrellas are recommended, just in case.
