On Thursday, August 23 10am – 12pm, senior citizens can enjoy exactly that on the peaceful Steep Rock Preserve in Washington. Back by popular demand and with in the senior community, Steep Rock Association (SRA) staff will lead a short and leisurely guided hike to a historic area, followed by a light picnic lunch (provided).

Observe the unique ruins of the Holiday House, a hotel which once offered respite for female factory workers from New York City at the turn of the 20th century.
