First Day Hike

1/1/2024 | Montauk State Park | Salem, MO

Welcome in the new year at Montauk State Park with a guided hike on Pine Ridge Trail. The trail is of moderate difficulty, as it has some steep sections as it winds through Montauk Upland Forest Natural Area and along a ridge of mature pine woodlands, which feel like a step back in time. The trail is a little under 2 miles, and the hike will be up to two hours.

This all-ages event is free and open to the public. Pets are welcome but must be kept on a leash. Participants should wear sturdy hiking shoes and meet at the nature center at 10 a.m.

For more information, or to check the status of the hike, call the nature center at 573-548-2225.
