Take a Hike Day

Tuesday, November 22, 2022 @ the Outdoor Discovery Center

Thursday, November 17 was National Take a Hike Day. There was a storm warning, so we put it off a few days.

We’re going to celebrate it a few days later with a hike at the Outdoor Discovery Center, located at 4214 56th Street, south of Holland airport.

We’ll meet in the parking lot at 2:30 and walk about 3 miles on flat trails that are a mix of dirt, pavement, and boardwalk. We’ll pass by sculptures, cultural history exhibits, and the raptor center. The landscape includes woods, wetlands, fishing ponds, and more. Here’s a map of the trails.

Afterward, those who are interested can debrief and rehydrate with the beverage of their choice at Guardian Brewing Company.

The American Hiking Society started the tradition of National Take a Hike Day in 1976.
