FREE SMITH ROCK FIRST DAY HIKE
Seeing those holiday calories already pile on and want a little motivation to deal with it in a group setting? Or maybe the a chance of snowy conditions have you a bit skittish if you're new to the park? Take the free Smith Rock First Day Hike with a ranger on January 1, 2018, from 10:00 AM to 1:30 PM. But hurry and sign up. It's limited to the first 35 who do so. By signing up you'll be notified if conditions are too severe and the hike gets canceled.
Meet at the Welcome Center yurt and take an easy, 4-mile hike on the River Trail and learn about winter wildlife and the unique features of Smith Rock State Park. Wear layered warm clothing and hiking shoes. Bring water and snacks, and binoculars are always handy.
Kids have to be at least 7 years old, and no dogs, child strollers, or bikes are allowed on this guided hike.
NOTE: ADMISSION IS FREE TO ALL ON JANUARY 1, 2018, NOT JUST THOSE ON THE RANGER-LED HIKE
