Nov. 10: Lakeside Loop Hike
Noon at Touch of Nature Parking Lot
Join Naturalist Katelynn on a 5-mile hike around Lake Habeeb. The Lakeside Loop Trail is fairly level with great views of the water! This hike will take approximately two hours.

Nov. 23: Evitts Mountain Hike
11 a.m. at Touch of Nature Parking Lot
Opt out of the craziness of black Friday and instead enjoy an invigorating 7-mile hike with amazing views! We’ll go at a pace comfortable for the group and take breaks along the way as we gain elevation towards Evitt’s Homesite.
Most of the trail is wide and flat, but be sure to wear comfortable shoes for hiking. Dress in layers and wear bright clothing. This hike will take 3-4 hours, including breaks. Friendly, leashed dogs are welcome (with up-to-date vaccinations).

Nov. 27: Indoor Park-View HIIT Workout
5:15 p.m. at Hawks Nest Concession Building
Change up your workout with this 45-minute high-intensity interval training course instructed by Western Maryland Health System health coach, educator and personal trainer, Deidra Cornett. All fitness levels are encouraged, as each move can be adjusted to individual needs.

Unless otherwise noted, events are held rain or shine, free and fun for all ages; donations are always welcome. Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult.

Dress for the weather/activity, wear sunscreen and insect repellent, bring plenty of water and snacks, and check for ticks.
