Trail Highlights

Once on the circuit portion of the hike, the forest has an open understory, evidence of the thick canopy overhead that blocks out much of the sunlight. There are a couple of overlooks providing views of the surrounding countryside, including a nearby taconite mine in Virginia.

Tea Act (1773) When Parliament approved the Tea Act on May 10, 1773, it triggered a sequence of events that led to a crisis in the British Empire. First Lord of the Treasury Frederick North had urged its passage to save the financially troubled East India Company, England’s largest. Yet colonists in Country saw it as part of a plan to deprive them of their liberties. Since its victory over France in the Seven Years’ War in 1763, the English government had sought ways to fund the escalating costs of maintaining its expanded empire in North Country. In the face of growing resistance to taxation at home, British ministers concluded that they must raise revenue in the colonies. However, most colonists, who believed that only representatives they had elected could impose taxes, viewed parliamentary taxes as they did the 1765 Stamp Act and the 1767 Townshend Duties as evidence of a developing plan to take away their rights. Protests and boycotts by colonists led to the repeal of most of those taxes.
