Description

In honor of Veterans Day, Lula Lake Land Trust is thanking you for your service. We are opening our gates on Sunday, November 10, to allow Veterans and Active Duty Military (plus their family and friends) FREE access to our Core Preserve. This is a free event but you still must register as space is limited. The registration is per vehicle, not per person. This is a special event for Veterans and Active Duty Military, and each vehicle must have an individual with a military identification inside.

Spend the Sunday before Veterans Day with 8+ miles of trails, bluff views, and a 120-foot waterfall...take time to make the most out of today. Spaces are limited to maintain the tranquility of nature. This is generally a 3-hour hike, and last admittance is at 3:30pm. The Core Preserve closes at 5:00pm.
