First Day Hike

1/1/2022 | Roaring River State Park | Cassville, MO

Join us as we celebrate a new year in nature! As part of America's State Parks First Day Hikes initiative, we will lead a moderate 3-mile hike on Eagle's Nest Trail at Roaring River State Park. Join us as we enjoy a stroll along the river before hiking up to the limestone bench bluff. At the midpoint of this hike, we will work up a steep hill before returning to the trailhead via the gravel road. Hikers can expect to see a small cave, a spring and excellent views of Roaring River. Expect steep and muddy sections of trail; waterproof boots are recommended. The trailhead is located in Campground 2 behind Campsite 94.

This hike is free and open to the public. Dress appropriately for the weather and bring water and snacks.

Registration for this event is required, and a signup link will be available here:
