This year, Hawk Mountain is joining the movement for people to reconnect outdoors over the holidays. Instead of venturing to the malls or the internet for deals, #OptOutside and enjoy the PA autumn outdoors with your loved ones.
We are offering a guided hike of our River of Rocks trail, which is a 3-4 hour excursion, including natural history interpretation by our educators along the way. Participants should anticipate rugged natural trails, lots of rocks underfoot and a steep descent, and should come prepared with a daypack with water and snacks, sturdy shoes, and a sense of adventure.
If you can't make it for the guided hike, the trails will be open all day for any and all visitors who #OptOutside! And be sure to share with the hashtag on social media and tag us in your posts.
In our increasingly urbanized society, we all need to find time to breathe fresh air and reflect; spending time outdoors lifts us up. Three years ago, REI started this #OptOutside movement by closing their doors and inviting their employees to head outdoors and connect with nature instead of fighting Black Friday crowds. Now, many non-profits and companies do the same and encourage EVERYONE to opt outside!
Trail fee required for Non-Members
