For our returning friends (and new faces), know that there are some exciting changes to Hike Fest this year:

  • We are retiring the Silent Auction! Instead, you can look forward to a premium raffle and a chance to purchase a Mystery Bag! (What’s a Mystery Bag, you ask? Stay tuned for more clues…)
  • Now featuring half-day hikes! These will be offered in addition to our regular full-day hikes. Also available: a quick picnic hike and a night hike.
  • More new interactive events! Need a break from hiking? We’re going to offer two art classes, a ropes course class, presentations (including an update on outdoor trends and cool new hiking gadgets hosted by our friends from Trailfitters) and a good, old-fashioned campfire! Some is nice, but s’more is better!
  • Family-style supper on Saturday night! No more waiting in line – sit around a table with old and new friends and dig in. Dinner will be prepared by the amazing chefs at Wolf Ridge.
