Experience the winter woodlands at Northampton County Parks Department’s newest open space acquisition and learn about the history and mystery of the site’s famous Hexenkopf Rock
Join us for a guided walk led by Jim Wilson on this 77-acre tract of mature woodlands and wetlands on Hexenkopf Ridge in the beautiful Pennsylvania Highlands. Hexenkopf Rock—or simply Hexenkopf—is the centerpiece of the preserve. Hexenkopf means Witch’s Head in German and in the 18th and 19th centuries, Hexenkopf gained a reputation as a repository of evil and a residence of demons and witches, where pow-wow doctors would cast human illnesses from their sick patients. We’ll join Hexenkopf historians Linda and Ned Heindel at this infamous rock to hear about its folklore and legend. 1.5 hours long, about ½-mile in total length, starting at 11 am on 02/21. Inclement weather date February 28th.
