|First Day Hike – Fresh New Start|
|Time:||8:00 a.m. To 4:00 p.m. Start Time Changed From 2:00 p.m.|
|Location:||Wilderness Road Trail and Historic Martin's Station|
Enjoy a fresh new start to a brand new year with a special winter-themed self-guided hike that takes you from a modern setting into a glimpse of the 18th century Virginia frontier. Hikers will visit seven stops on the trail with interpretive signs about the bison that grazed in the area, the river cane Boone tagged the Beargrass, the Indian camp, Joseph Martin's first cabin, the blacksmith shop, Martin's Station fort, and the Robinson cabin; an authentic 18th century structure recently relocated to the park. An informative brochure will provide details for the hike, including what mother nature had in store for those settlers who navigated the Wilderness Road during winter's harshest times.
The first 100 attendees will receive a special First Day Hike bumper sticker. Sign up for our team challenge or photo contest for a chance to win prizes. Find the details here http://bit.ly/2015hikes. You don't have to participate in the scheduled activity to qualify as participating.
