Grab a partner, put on your best walking shoes and kick off the New Year by taking part in the First Day Hike at Lock and Dam Park on Sunday, January 1 at noon.
Hikers are asked to gather at the Coosa River Trading Post before setting foot on the self-led hike. Friendly dogs on leashes are welcome and owners need to clean up after them.
The park offers two great trails for hikers to explore. One trail goes along the Coosa River and through the primitive campground and Coosa River Nature Preserve. The second trail allows hikers to explore a geocaching site on upgraded trails.
The cost to hike is $5 per hiker, which includes a post-hike hot dog and drink. So be sure to stop back by the Trading Post after your hike to pick up your hot dog and drink. The event is rain or shine. For more information, visit rfpra.com.
