Vade Mecum hotel at Hanging Rock State Park

Join Ranger Fields and hike the Vade Mecum property, uncovering pieces of the unusual past of the infamous mineral springs resort, including Cheshire Hall, rustic cabins, chapel, and springhouse. 

This will be approximately 2 miles on moderate terrain, so come prepared with clothing fit for hiking, such as adequate shoes and items such as water or hiking stick. Bring a flashlight and don't forget to bring your camera as this is currently not open to the public! Due to the no pets in building policy, leashed pets are discouraged.

Meet at the Vade Mecum Access.
