First Day Hike & 5K Fun Run

Start out on the right foot in 2018 with a short hike, exploring nature in winter at Hills Creek. This slow-paced, family-oriented hike will be less than 1.5 miles in length. If conditions warrant, limited snowshoes will be available or you are encouraged to bring your own.

Also, back this year, is the 5K Fun Run around the lake. It's a no frills no cost run where you record your own time and have some fun challenging your friends to some healthy competition or just challenge yourself to healthy activity.

Limited hot chocolate will be provided FREE! Leftover holiday treats not included, but you can bring those to share!

Come early or stay late – the sledding hill is nearby or you can explore more trails or the plowed campground roads throughout the park.
