First Day Hike

1/1/2020 | Big Sugar Creek State Park | Pineville, MO

Join us as we celebrate a new year in nature! A naturalist will lead a 3-mile hike on the Ozark Chinquapin Trail at Big Sugar Creek State Park on New Year’s Day as part of America's State Parks First Day Hikes initiative. First Day Hikes offer a great way to get outside, exercise, enjoy nature and welcome the New Year with friends and family.


This event is free and open to the public. Please dress for the weather, wear closed-toe shoes, and bring water and snacks. We will meet at the Ozark Chinquapin trailhead at 10 a.m.
