First Day Hike at Beavers Bend State Park
Mark your calendar for a visit to Beavers Bend State Park on January 1 for a free guided hike. Meet at the Forest Heritage Center at 11am for an easy to moderate, one mile hike on the Heritage Tree Trail. The hike will end at the campfire ring behind the old Nature Center where hikers can enjoy complimentary roasted hot dogs and hot chocolate. Be sure to bring your binoculars, a camera, water and appropriate dress for a cool-weather hike. Leashed pets are allowed.
The event is in conjunction with the America's State Parks First Day Hikes initiative that will take place in all 50 states. The First Day Hikes offer individuals and families an opportunity to begin the New Year rejuvenating and connecting with the outdoors by taking a healthy hike on the first day of the new year.
