First Day Hike

1/1/2023 | Big Sugar Creek State Park | Pineville, MO

Join us as we celebrate a new year in nature! As part of America's State Parks' First Day Hikes initiative, park staff will lead a moderate 3.1-mile hike on Ozark Chinquapin Trail at Big Sugar Creek State Park. First Day Hikes offer a great opportunity to get outside, exercise, enjoy nature, and welcome the new year with friends and family.

The hike will begin at the Ozark Chinquapin Trailhead at 9 a.m. The trail is known to have water at several creek crossings during wet weather, so waterproof boots are strongly recommended. Participants should also dress for the weather and bring water and snacks.

This event is free and open to all ages.

For more information, contact the Roaring River State Park interpreter at the Ozark Chinquapin Nature Center at 417-847-3742.

Registration for this event is required, and a sign-up link will be available here:

Hike Time: 9 a.m. - noon
Meeting Location: Ozark Chinquapin Trailhead
