New Year’s Eve #HealthyHolidays Hike
Join Outdoor Afro Kentucky for a New Year’s Eve #HealthyHolidays Hike at Cherokee Park. We’ll hike approximately 2.5 miles on a moderate trail with some hills. Meet us in the parking lot by Cochran Hill Dog Run in Cherokee Park. Follow GPS directions to Cochran Hill Dog Run (off of Lexington Road, see map below). Be prepared for cold weather and dress in layers. Non-cotton clothing made of a moisture wicking fabric is recommended. For details on choosing the right clothing for a hike visit REI's Expert Advice webpage ( We will be hiking on trails, but hiking shoes aren't necessary. Wear athletic shoes that you're ok getting dirty if parts of the trail are muddy. Please bring water. Let's kick off the New Year right by going on a hike!
