Beazell Forest and Fort Hoskins

Then we will drive a short distance to nearby Fort Hoskins History Park for a short hike and a history lesson, ending there with a picnic lunch under the gazebo. Restrooms available at both sites. Register with trip leader who will confirm meeting place and time 2 days prior to the hike.
