Animal Tracking is a way of glimpsing the lives of the animals in the habitats we use for pleasure and recreation. Tracking animals by bicycle is a fun way to get an overall view of a habitat and is a skill that can be learned to enhance your interest in riding.

The October 5th class will be gentle ride on a remote backroad in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. We will meet at 11:00 AM in the Stabler Area, north of Carson, at Hemlock RecreationPark and drive another five or six miles to the starting point. Appropriate for any bike that can be used on gravel roads, the actual riding will be less than 10 miles with gentle inclines.

There will be opportunities for photographing animal sign. We will spend time reading the stories of the animals who cross and use the road.

This is a class for adults, who are comfortable with basic maintenance of a bike, and can transport their own bike. We will expect each rider to bring their lunch and the necessities for an afternoon in the woods.

Depending on the group size, there will be 3 to 4 volunteer guides who are all certified trackers.

Any student enrolled in the Summer Tracking Comprehensive Tracking program is invited as our guest.

Any student who has taken an introductory class from Treesong in 2019, check for a discount.
