In With The New Hike

Looking for more cool stuff to do?
We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

Welcome the New Year with a brisk hike through the Crane Wildlife Refuge! We’ll begin with a small fire on the beach – bring a slip of paper with regrets from the past year, and we’ll send them up in smoke. Then we’ll cleanse our psyches with a trek through the starkly beautiful landscape of the dunes; trails winding along the sandy hills, blood pumping, the smell of the sea in the air – what a perfect way to to enter into 2018! At hike’s end we’ll warm up with hot cider.

Please note: We will be hiking up and down dunes, through soft sand, for approximately 2 ½ - 3 miles. Suggested ages 13 and older.

An email with details about where to meet, what to bring, etc., will be sent to all registered participants a few days before the hike.
