National Trails Day hikes at Lafayette Heritage Trail Park

American Hiking Society’s National Trails Day® is the country’s largest celebration of trails and there will be activities all over the U.S. Come celebrate with us on a 1-, 2- or 4-mile roundtrip walk. The 4-mile hike to two overlooks and to the bridge leading to Tom Brown Park starts at 10 a.m. The 2-mile hike to two overlooks starts at 11:00 and the 1-mile hike to the first overlook starts at 12 noon. Please come 15 minutes early to sign in!

All walks require climbing a large hill or two up to the overlooks above Lake Lafayette and its prairie. Afterward, explore the Park’s fishing fingers and the lakefront on your own. The ground is rough, so wear sturdy shoes. Don’t forget your water, and bring binoculars or a camera if you want. And bring the kids!

Take Conner Boulevard east from Capital Circle and turn on Heritage Trail Boulevard through the Piney Z residential neighborhood, through the traffic circle to the lakeside park. Look for the National Trails Day banner under the pine trees inside the park’s circular road. Come walk with us!!
