National Trails Day Hike: Holly River
June 3 @ 10:45 am – 3:00 pm
Holly River State Park celebrates National Trails Day on Saturday, June 3, 2023 with a guided hike led by Master Naturalist Jane Birdsong. “What better choice than the Tramontaine Trail because it leads to an historic Swiss homestead, where hikers can explore, seek and discover evidence of the mountain farm.”
Today the hike is about 3-hours. This trail hike will have a rest stop at the site of an old Swiss homestead settled in the 1870s where you can also see one of Holly River’s oldest and largest trees – oh if they could talk and tell stories.
This National Trails Day hike meets at the porch of the Holly River State Park office at 10:45 a.m. Hikers should wear sturdy shoes, bring water and lunch. ‘We’ll set foot at 11:00 a.m and return by 3:00 p.m. which allows for a couple of rest stops along the way.
Please call Holly River State Park office at 304-493-6353 to preregister or for more information. This hike is open to the public and fee free. Hikers received a Trails Day patch at the conclusion of the activity.
Holly River Restaurant will be open for anyone taking advantage of ordering a good lunch after a great hike.
Since 1993, National Trails Day has been held annually, the first Saturday of June, to bring attention to our state’s and nation’s hiking trails.
