Join park staff at the equestrian parking lot at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 30 to begin a guided 3.8-to-4.2-mile hike on North Thompson Trail. We will discuss plants, trees and animals that we see along the way. North Thompson Trail allows visitors to hike by the Thompson Cemetery, the Thompson House and the Thompson River. An extra 0.4 miles allows hikers to also see Leatherwood Hollow.

Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable hiking shoes and to bring water and a snack.
