Celebrate the Great American Campout Weekend with our park staff on an overnight hike on the Glacier Ridge Trail! On this expedition we will be hiking a total of 8-miles on the Glacier Ridge Trail. The first day we will meet at the Bicycle Rental Parking Lot, and hike 4.5 miles to the Davis Hollow Cabin. We will set up camp, either sleep in the cabin bunkhouse or pitch a tent, your choice. Then, use Dutch ovens to cook dinner (provided). After dinner, we will kick back and relax, birding and gazing up at the stars. After a good night’s rest, we will cook a provided, hearty breakfast together, then hit the trail.
The second day hike will traverse across the glacier-scoured landscape, 3.5-miles to the 528 Boat Launch, where Park Staff will shuttle you back to your cars at the Bicycle Rental. This hike is considered most difficult hike, so hikers should be in good physical shape and be prepared to traverse steep, rocky and uneven terrain. Bring plenty of water, trail snacks, sleeping bag, and pillow. Cost is $30, to cover dinner and breakfast. Pre-registration is required. To register call the Park Office at 724-368-8811. Program will be limited to 12 participants, ages 16 and up.
