First Day Hikes: Boots on the Blackstone
January 1 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Celebrate the New Year with a First Day Hike at Blackstone River & Canal Heritage State Park. Join DCR Staff and BHC Trail Ambassadors for a walk along the canal towpath, view the river, and find signs of winter wildlife along the waterways and forest.
Warm up after at the River Bend Farm Visitor Center with hot cocoa and conversation. Please consider bringing your own mug.
The hike is two and a quarter miles (2.25), about 90-minutes long. Be prepared for cold weather: dress in layers and wear winter boots. If conditions permit, bring snowshoes and hiking poles. Dogs are welcome on leash. Visitor Center opens at Noon. Registration begins at 12:30 p.m.
