Description

Have a yen to try a local hike, but don’t know where to begin? Join for scenic morning hikes close to home this summer and fall. The Sampler Hike Series is a free six-pack of popular treks lead by Parks and Recreation Staff on Saturday mornings. Explorers of all skill levels are invited to experience the fun of one hike, all six, or somewhere in between. Space is limited to 12 hikers and advanced registration is necessary. 

We will be hiking to incredible views at Hawksbill Rock via the Snowball Trail. This hike is a 2.8 mile out and back trail. It is considered a moderately challenging route.
