ALNC UPDATES

Our facility will be closed Monday, January 16th in honor of Martin Luther King Jr Day.
We plan to reopen on Tuesday, Jan 17th at 9am.

As always, you’re invited to hike our trails, which are open daily from dawn until dusk.

Welcome! Our facility is open on weekdays from 9am to 4pm and on weekends from 10am to 2pm.

As always, our grounds and trails featuring self-guided tours are free and open daily from dawn until dusk.
