ANNOUNCEMENT RE: NEW YEAR’S DAY HIKE AND FEAST – Due to extremely cold temperature predictions there will be a dine-in rather than a dine-out after the hike! We’ll still meet at 10 A.M. New Year’s Day in the marina parking lot as planned. There we will sign in and take group pictures. We will drop off food at the Interpretive Center on the way to the Millennium Trail Head to hike. So, don’t let the nearly arctic temperatures keep you at home! Come prepared to enjoy the 1st Hike and Feast with just this slight change. We are looking forward to seeing you there!
We can't promise snow every year but we can promise a healthy, happy, fun time!
Jan. 1 – Annual New Year’s Day 1st Hike and Feast, 10 A.M., Edgar Evins State Park.
It has been said that whatever you do on the first day of the year, you will continue to do for the rest of the year... So start the year off right with a 2 1/2 mile easy to moderate hike with a Park Ranger through the tranquil woods at Edgar Evins State Park.
Meet in the marina parking lot, next to the picnic shelters, at 10 A.M. If you wish to stay for the feast bring a prepared dish to share with others in front of a roaring fire following the hike. You may drop your food off at the shelters before the hike.
Those who wish to hike more may opt to do the 2 mile Highland Rim Nature Trail, also moderate, on their own or with some of the other hikers after lunch.
