First Day Hike

  • Start the New Year on the right foot with this gentle, 1-mile walk in the woods! Discover how animals survive the long cold of winter while you enjoy the beauty of Colonel Denning State Park. There is no cost to participate in this walk, and all are welcome, including friendly, leashed dogs. Please note that the trail is not stroller-friendly. Bring a water bottle and dress for the weather, with shoes or boots that can get wet or muddy. Meet at Pavilion 1.
