First Day Hike

January 1, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Ring in 2019 with a walk on the wild side! This naturalist-led hike will be approximately 2.5 miles long on rugged terrain, but at a leisurely pace, on Red Bud Trail (meet at the trailhead on the hill by the lake, signs will be posted). The trail and time of year offer a great opportunity to see not only fantastic scenery, but abundant winter wildlife, including waterfowl, deer, bald eagles and more! Photography and binoculars are welcome, and the park will have some binoculars available to borrow for those who wish to use them.

Make sure to wear weather appropriate clothing and comfortable hiking shoes. Bringing a water bottle is recommended.

First Day Hikes are promoted by America’s State Parks and you will be joining hikers from all 50 states.
