Learn the history of why the CCC left it standing and see several original structures. Moderate hike on old CCC roadbed. About the hike: Approx. 3.5 miles round trip, there & back.  Come on out and burn those calories while enjoying the Great Outdoors! First Day Hikes are staff-led hikes, held annually on New Year’s Day thru-out the Country, and are designed to encourage visitors to enjoy parks year round and to promote good health and exercise by working off those calories gained during the holidays. Start the New Year off right!
