You are advised to wear sturdy shoes and put on bug spray! Check yourself and family carefully when you return to your car. 

There is one place on the lower hill with broken glass (the old hot beds). Children should be warned not to pick any up.  Also, the 30 Chickasaw Plum trees on the lower hill have impressive thorns. PLEASE DO NOT WALK UNDERNEATH THEM.
