National Trails Day Hike: Cacapon
June 3 @ 10:00 am – 12:30 pm
Cacapon Resort State Park celebrates National Trails Day on June 3, 2023 with two guided hikes. Organized by Park Naturalist Valerie Chaney and park volunteers, both hikes will start from the Nature Center at 10:00 a.m.
The easy to moderate hike will be on the Laurel Trail, a forested and lake view trail that is approximately 2½ miles of total walking.
The more strenuous hike will be on the Ziler and Central Trail Loop. Led by naturalist Allen Miller, this hike provides multiple views with a vigorous climb and descent, but worth every step. We pace ourselves to enjoy the experience. Both hikes start at the nature center and depart at the same time.
Hikes are open to the public and without charge. Wearing comfortable closed toed walking or hiking shoes is recommended. Hikers receive a Trails Day patch at the conclusion of the activity.
National Trails Day is an initiative to unite all muscle-powered trail activities with the goal of connecting more people to trails. Each year, since 1993, on the first Saturday of June, the American Hiking Society and the trails community invite Americans of all ages to walk or hike.
