Event Details

Join thousands of people across the nation by taking part in an annual First Day Hike. Mr. John Homer Bothwell extensively explored Stonyridge, even in the winter, often enjoying campfire food and exploring the wild nature he encountered. Come ring in the new year with a hike on Stonyridge Trail.


This year’s hike will take place at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 1, 2022. Meet at the kiosk near the Stonyridge Trailhead (38.79424937, -93.22190869). Stonyridge Trail is a rugged 0.50-mile loop and is expected to take between 45 minutes and one hour to hike. Leashed four-legged friends are welcome.


While on the trail, you may encounter dirt, mud, gravel, shifting rocks, slippery surfaces, roots or downed vegetation, physically challenging obstacles, steep grades and inclines, bluffs or drop-offs next to the trail, bridges or structural crossings, and occasional water over the trail.


Prepare for cold weather by wearing a hat, dressing in layers, covering your skin, bringing a snack, keeping your water warm, and using hand and toe warmers.


For more information or to check the status of the hike, call the park office at 660-827-0510. The program may be canceled due to inclement weather.
