Beginning this summer and running through August 5, Paris Mountain State Park offers Creek Ranger family hikes on Friday mornings.
This summer, spend Friday mornings making wonderful family memories. Wade into Mountain Creek from 10 am to 12 pm while on a nature walk led by a ranger or staff interpreter. Look for dragonfly nymphs, salamanders, and so many other animals that live on Paris Mountain.
The entire hike will be around a mile long. After spending some time there, you’ll return on foot to the creek. Although there are a few pairs of water shoes that may be borrowed, participants are advised to bring their own.
The Creek Ranger Hike is open for all ages with a limit of 25 people. Registration is required and children must be accompanied by an adult.
The fee is $5 per person PLUS admission and may be paid in cash, credit/debit cards, or both at the admission booth.
The admission fee is as follows:
- $6 for ages 16 to 64
- $3.50 for ages 6 to 15
- $3.75 for those 65 and up
Children ages 5 and under are not charged admission, so they only pay for the program. And if you have a Park Passport, you only pay the program cost.
Call the park office at 864-244-5565 for further details and to register, or send an email to Interpretive Ranger Cathy Taylor at [email protected].
