It’s time to celebrate Mother Nature, so lace up your hiking boots, lace your dog, grab some water and a snack, and get ready on the National Take a Hike Day Tuesday November 17, 2020 on the way.

“We’re excited to partner with the American Hiking Society,” says local Recreation Director Judith Sumner as we celebrate National Take A Hike Day. “All of our goals are to promote a local mindset that encourages people to explore the hidden paths and neighborhoods of their city.”
