National Walk Week is a great opportunity to get out of the house, enjoy the fresh spring air and meet new people! It’s also a great time to complete the 10 Mile Trail Challenge to hike every trail at Spring Mill State Park!
The Friends of Spring Mill State Park, Spring Mill State Parkand the Bedford Hiking Club have put together a full and FUN week of hiking in Lawrence County! By joining us you could be one step closer (literally) to completing the challenge and earning your free sticker. You can even purchase a Trail Challenge t-shirt!
It’s okay if you aren’t able to make it to each one! The challenge can be completed on your own time, but we do hope to see you!
