First Day Hike at Cass
Friday, January 1, 2021

Taking a hike on the first day of the year is a step forward into 2021. Participate in a guided First Day Hike at Cass Scenic Railroad State Park. Meet at the Cass Visitor’s Center at 1 p.m. to set out for a three-mile round trip on a flat crushed gravel surface. It is easy walking, and you’ll be outdoors for about an hour and a half or a little longer depending upon weather conditions. Wear good walking shoes or boots for winter walking, and wear layers of winter wear.

Hikes are led by Park Interpreter Kailey Gibson-Price.

The hike is free and open to the public.

Hikers get a First Day patch at the conclusion of the hike. This year’s patch will be a red mitten. If participating for the first time in a First Day Hike, you may opt for the original snowflake design, if available.
