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, and 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.
