Celebrate a healthy start to the New Year by taking a guided hike at one of Missouri’s favorite and most scenic state parks, encompassing over 4,900 acres in Ste. Genevieve County.  Enjoy the crisp winter air as you traverse hills of stately pine and oak trees, rocky streams with waterfalls, sandstone canyons, and cliffs.  Maybe even spot some winter wildlife, icy frost flowers, and a variety of woodland birds! This naturalist lead hike will begin at the Whispering Pines trailhead in Hawn State Park.

First Day Hike at Hawn is a moderately strenuous, 2 hour hike through hardwood and short-leafed pine forest.

January 1, 1:00-3:00PM annually

While this particular event is once a year, the park is open year-round. There are amazing trials, scenic viewing areas, and plenty of birdwatching. Visitors can also camp on the grounds.
