Blackberry Picking at Tayor Fork Ecological Area
Taylor Fork Ecological Area is open for blackberry picking through the first three weeks of July. This is extreme adventure blackberry picking; not casual, farm-style picking. These are wild blackberries in thick brambles. The area has poison ivy, ticks, chiggers and limited shade. There is no restroom. There are no venomous snakes. Be sure to bring drinking water, and containers for the berries. Long-sleeved shirts and long pants, sunscreen, insect repellent and a hat are highly recommended for this adventure. Be sure to close the gates as you pass. Sign in at the visitor log before going to pick.
