Start the first day of the year with a ranger walking in the woods. Dress for the weather and bring plenty of snacks. If you’re a birder, don’t forget those binoculars! No need to register; just show up for the hike. If you would like more information, please contact the park office at[masked].

The second hike will be at the Ebenezer Church Recreation Area at the Old Oak Trail. The Old Oak Trail is an easy 1 mile loop trail that begins at the parking lot in the Ebenezer Picnic Area A. This trail can be cut to 1/2 mile by taking the shortcut loop, making this trail great for small children. Hikers will see large hollow oaks, 2 ponds, fence-rows and clues of the farms that used to fill the area. Plan to meet at the trailhead near Shelter 8 in Area A at 1pm.
