This spring the River-to-River Trail Society
will once again offer a schedule of guided hikes in and near the Shawnee National Forest. All hikes are free and open to the public, typically average about four hours in length. Although the hikes vary in level of difficulty, all are intended for people in good health who have done some hiking in the past. Hiking sticks and boots or sturdy shoes are strongly recommended. All hikers should bring their own water and a snack. No dogs, please.
Chris Drone will lead a waterfall hike along Cedar Creek, in Pope County. Meet at 10:00 a.m. at Ozark Baptist Church, 632 Ozark Road, Ozark, Illinois. For information or directions, call (618) 926-3250.
