Event Details

You are invited to begin the New Year on a First Day Hike at Bennett Spring State Park. Ranger Bobby Sharp will lead hikers on the beautiful 2.5-mile Savanna Ridge Trail. Winding through open woodland and a glade, the trail overlooks Spring Hollow. A portion of the trail follows roads used by people from the 1840s to today as they accessed ponds and grazing areas. Abundant wildlife that may be viewed includes deer, chipmunks, squirrels and a variety of birds.

The Savanna Ridge Trail consists of steep grades, stream crossings without bridges and natural surface material such as rocks, dirt, mud, shifting rocks and slippery surfaces. Hikers should wear appropriate footwear and dress for the weather. Meet Ranger Sharp at the trailhead located past the cabins southeast of the spring at 11 a.m.
