BROOK PARK – Ever wonder where how the tasty treat you pour over your pancakes makes it from the tree to your table?  Learn the History of Maple Sugaring at the Rocky River Reservation.

Naturalists will guide you on a hike along the Sugarbush Trail where you’ll see the sap-collecting methods and syrup-making processes used by Native Americans, pioneers and modern sugar farmers.

Tours take place on Saturdays and Sundays from February 25 through March 11.  The tours leave the Maple Grove Picnic Area every 20 minutes from 11:00 a.m. to 3:40 p.m.

The hike ends at the Sugarhouse where you can watch sap become maple syrup.

Maple Grove Picnic Area is located off Valley Parkway in Rocky River Reservation, between Cedar Point Road and Spafford Road in Brook Park.
