While enjoying beautiful views of Fox Creek, Cedar Point, Steep Hill Beach, and the Grane Allee, families will discover coastal habitats and historic structures on this ~2-hour hike through the trails, grounds, and gardens of Castle Hill. Participants will learn about and make observations in salt marsh, dune, and beach coastal habitats, and tour the outdoor historic and cultural spaces at Castle Hill such as the gardens, Casino, and Grande Allee. CraneExplorer guides will lead participants in engaging all 5 senses to make observations in nature, and share stories that encourage families to travel back in time and imagine life as a Crane.
CraneExplorer events are designed to appeal to families with children ages 5-12 while giving their parents a great opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the Crane Estate. These hikes and interactive education programs cover less ground to accommodate smaller strides and have more frequent stops to look, listen, and learn from our CraneOutdoors guides. These family-friendly experiences teach kids and delight adults by exploring the wonder of our coastal habitats and the rich history of the Crane Estate.
Family pricing is for one “average” nuclear family (approximately 2 adults and 2 children). If you have a larger family or want to bring additional family members please purchase additional tickets. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
