Join us as we celebrate a new year in nature! The park staff will lead a strenuous 3-mile hike on 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.

This event is free and open to everyone ages 5 and up. Please dress for the weather, wear closed-toe shoes, and bring water and snacks. For more information or to check the status of the hike, contact the Ozark Chinquapin Nature Center at 417-847-3742.
