Start the New Year With a Lost Maples Hike!
Your New Year's resolution to get outside and enjoy nature will get a great start on a First Day Hike at Lost Maples SNA. Choose your hike: a more family-oriented, short hike around the Maple Trail, or a more rigorous expedition on the East Trail, with the Scenic Overlooks.
The Lost Maples First Day Hike will meet at 10:00 am at the Trailhead for the Maple Trail in the Day Use parking lot.
Those who want a more leisurely stroll can hike the Maple Trail loop (about .8 mile long).
For a more energetic, blood-pumping experience, you can do the East Trail (about 4.6 mile long), with steep inclines, rocky paths, and Monkey Rock and the Grotto as points of interest, along with the Scenic Overlooks on the top of the ridge.
Please bring good hiking footwear, appropriate clothing for the forecasted weather, plenty of water, and a picnic or snacks.
Event is free, but park entrance fee is required. (Adults 13 and over are $6 each, children 12 and under are free.)
