First Day Hikes & Drop-in Booth
(10:00-4:00 each day):
Start the New Year off right! Plan on doing a self-guided First Day Hike anytime between dawn and dusk on the “First Weekend”, January 1st – 3rd. Before heading out you’re welcome to stop by our drop-in booth on the front porch of the Visitor Center anytime from 10 am–4 pm for suggestions on trails to hike to suit your needs. We have 52 miles of trail to choose from! Create a new tradition!
Other things to do at this outdoor station while maintaining social distance:
- Ask a Park Interpreter your nature and park history questions and learn about the bald eagle (January is Eagle Awareness Month!)
- Take home supplies to make your own bald eagle mask
- Pick up the Hidden Wonders Scavenger Hunt activity sheet for a fun activity to do on your hike
- Snap a picture at our photo “booth” to remember the day and to post on social media, including the Friends of Hobbs Facebook page
Keep track of the miles you hiked and afterwards, go to:
www.ArkansasStateParks.com/FirstDayHikes to log your First Day Hikes in an Arkansas State Park during the “First Weekend” and everyone in your group will receive a free sticker!
