COVID-19 Changes

To avoid stranger carpooling, this year all hikes will meet at the start location at 9:00 AM. If you do not have a ride share, you can meet at the start and hike as far as you want then turn around and hike back to your car.

This hike heads up and out of Emmerling Park, up Rich Hill, Lefever Hill and Log Cabin hill, heading towards Springdale. We end at the Springdale Veterans Hall on Freeport Road in Springdale.
  • You don't need to notify the hike leader that you plan to attend. Simply show up on time.

  • It's hunting season, so please wear safety orange on Saturday hikes.
  • The minimum unaccompanied age is 12.
