End Date: 2/22/2020End Time: 12:30 PM
Event Description:
11am - Meet for this hike at the Nature Center where our hike will begin. We will start our journey by heading south along the park road to the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camp area. We will check out some of the ruins of this camp area before heading back to the road. We will then hike a bit further to trek into the woods, off trail, to Deserter's Cave. Please know that this section of off-trail hiking will be rugged and steep so we will take it slow. In total this hike will be about 2 miles long and last a little over an hour. please be sure to dress for the weather, and bring your hiking boots as the steep hillside could be tough to navigate.

Advanced registration is not necessary and there is no limit on attendance, so feel free to get your group together and come along for this exciting hike. Dogs are more than welcome to join us as long as they are on a 6 foot leash and get along well with other dogs and humans alike. Please be sure to dress for the weather and wear proper footwear for these hikes.  In extreme weather conditions cancellations may be necessary, but we will go in the snow. Check our website and Facebook for conditions and cancellation information.
