First Day Hike at Robbers Cave State Park
Jan 01, 2018
Mark your calendar for a visit to Robbers Cave State Park near Wilburton on January 1 for a free guided hike. Meet at the Butterfield Room at the Belle Starr View Lodge at 9am for a moderate-to-strenuous, two-mile hike along the Belle Starr Loop Trail, or a 1.83-mile trek along the Coon Ridge Trail. Be sure to bring your binoculars, a camera, water and appropriate dress for a cool weather hike for maximum enjoyment. Prep beforehand with hot chocolate, coffee, water, black-eyed peas and trail mix, and enjoy a lunch of hot dogs, cornbread and more lucky black-eyed peas when you return. There will also be a drawing for a free hiking stick with a Robbers Cave hiking medallion. The drawing is open for First Day Hike participants only.
This 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.
