Guided, free First Day Hike at GC Park & Forest, call to preregister

posted by Billie Owens in Event.

What better way to greet the New Year than with a hike in nature?

On New Year’s Day, the ACORNS (Association for Conservation of Recreational and Natural Spaces) are offering a First Day Hike at the Genesee County Park & Forest! This FREE guided hike is for you and friends of all ages to welcome the coming year in the outdoors while getting exercise and connecting with nature.

The First Day Hike starts at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 1st, at the Interpretive Nature Center. From there we will make our way through open meadows and peaceful woodland trails to take in nature’s quiet beauty on a hike about two miles in total distance.

Our trek includes a stop at Pavilion A to warm up by the fire and refuel with snacks and beverages. Hike concludes at the Interpretive Nature Center. Snowshoes may be used, weather permitting, no previous experience needed! Rental fee is $5/pair and all proceeds go to ACORNS, the nonprofit organization that supports the parks.

Seize the day and enjoy the natural beauty of Genesee County Park & Forest! We hope that you’ll return to make hiking a FREE habit for a healthy 2019! Please preregister by calling 585-344-1122.
