First Day Hike at Raccoon Creek

Ready to start the new year off right?  What could be better than a 3-mile hike along Camp Trail following the Doak Run valley and stopping at one of parks Civilian Conservation Corps Group Camps where we will discuss the CCC involvement in the creation of the park. We'll throw in a little pioneer history of the area as well.  The hike will depart from the Parks Recreation Hall.
