First Day Hike

Sat. Jan. 1, 2022 – Saugatuck Dunes State Park – 1:00-3:00pm
No registration required.

If event day weather is bad, check here for cancellation.

Bring some cookies to share, plus a thermos with hot cocoa or coffee. Don’t bring alcohol. Wear layered clothing for warmth. If the snow is deep and you have gaiters, wear them. To avoid slipping on an icy trail, wear shoes with cleats or spikes – or bring trekking poles.

Meet at the picnic shelter in the state park’s parking lot (not at Felt Mansion). We will hike a trail, then share cookies and drink hot beverages.
