Meet Ranger Matt Brown at 8:30 am in the Nature Center parking lot for a strenuous, 10-mile trek around the Lower Loop Overnight Trail. This hike crosses Cane Creek Gorge, so be prepared for an 800 ft. descent and climb midway through the trip. What a great way to take care of some New Years resolutions! This hike may take 6-7 hours. Wear hiking boots, warm moisture wicking clothing, and bring water and snacks. For more information, please email Ranger Matt Brown.
