Meet at 2 p.m. – Lou and Helen Adams CCC Museum
Join us on the first hike of the New Year as we traverse the CCC Trail and learn a little about the park’s history. It’s about a two-mile trek over easy terrain. If there is significant snow, this will become a snowshoe hike and we’ll supply the snowshoes. This hike is a part of a national campaign of First Day Hikes across the country to promote healthy lifestyles and year-round use of America’s state parks. Parker Dam State Park is located at 28 Fairview Rd., Penfield. Call 814-765-0630 for more information.
