First Day Hike

1/1/2019 | Meramec State Park | Sullivan, MO

"From Path to Path" - As we wonder through life, our path changes beneath our feet. This First Day Hike will follow several paths as we will start out on Deer Hollow Trail near Fisher Cave then go up to Bluff View Trail by the historic CCC dining lodge, then down to River Trail and out along the campground.  We'll explore woodlands, forest, river bottoms and bluffs. Lastly, we will stop to visit an old, weathered survivor, one who has seen and heard many moments through time…. a burr oak, which is more than 300 years old!

Meet in front of the visitor center to use the restrooms, then drive down to the Fisher Cave parking lot.  Please wear sturdy hiking shoes. Bring snacks, water and binoculars for this moderately challenging 3-mile hike. All should take about 2.5 hours to complete. Please call if necessary due to bad weather affecting road conditions.

Hike time: Noon - 2:30 p.m.
Meeting Location: Visitor Center
