Big South Fork Presents Healthy Hike on May 29th on the Middle Creek Trail

In celebration of the National Park Service's upcoming centennial, Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area will host a Healthy Hike on Friday, May 29, on the Middle Creek Trail. Participants should meet at 9:30 a.m. (EDT) at the Middle Creek Trailhead off the Divide Road. This ranger-led hike of 3.5 miles will traverse mild to moderate terrain on one of Big South Fork's first trails. Middle Creek holds some of the park's most beautiful rock shelters and some threatened plant species. Participants should wear weather appropriate clothing and bring plenty of water. Well-behaved dogs on leashes are always welcome.

Healthy Hikes provide the public with ranger-led activities that will allow park visitors to improve their fitness and provide the opportunity to further discover national parks. For more information, please contact the visitor center at (423) 286-7275.
