Description

Let's get together and #OptOutside! Join me on Black Friday at 10:30am for a day of hiking, hanging and exploring beautiful Matthiessen State Park!

We will meet in the parking lot at 10:15am and head out on the trail around 11am. We’ll be hiking around 3-5 miles at a moderate level, but you absolutely have the option to explore on your own or head back to the parking lot at any time!

Please dress accordingly & bring plenty of water and snacks! Extra layers, gloves and hats may be necessary depending on the weather. I suggest waterproof boots and trekking poles as we may approach water crossings.

We will break for lunch/snacks!

The first lucky attendees will receive a fun goodie bag and we will have a raffle with prizes sponsored by REI, Sawyer Products, and Mountian House!

We 100% always abide by LNT. If you aren’t aware, please check out this website.

ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST SIGN WAIVER! I will send out a reminder the week of. CLICK HERE to fill it out.

Can't wait to get outside with you all again this year!
You can reach me at (618) 550-9598 with any questions, concerns or to let me know if you’re running behind or if you/your group can’t make it!
