National Trails Day
National Trails Day is always the first Saturday in June and an outdoor activity initiative of the American Hiking Society. Join Naturalist Lauren Cole for a morning hike on the Rattlesnake/Coal Mine Trail at Chief Logan State Park. Meet at 9:00 a.m. at the Activities Building. The entire hike is about 2-1/2 miles.
The Coal Mine Trail is the equivalent of climbing 50 flights of stairs according to smart phone information. It is pretty steep at first but levels out and widens after a time, before ending steeply again. It is a moderate to difficult trail. The pace will not be a race. Hikers of any skill level will enjoy the exercise and conversation.
Hikers completing the activity with Cole will receive a patch to celebrate hiking. Wear comfortable closed-toe walking or hiking footwear. Open to anyone interested. There is no fee to participate.
