Twilight Hike

Twilight Hike

Appropriate for ages 8 and up; children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.  Please no pets.

Join a park ranger to explore the lower Profile Trail in the twilight hours.  We’ll hope to see and hear nocturnal wildlife and enjoy the woods in that special time of the day.  We’ll walk one mile, round trip.  Bring a flashlight and dress for the weather.  Closed toes shoes are highly recommended.

The Profile Trail is located on Highway 105 South; 1/2 mile north of the Highway 184 intersection [DIRECTIONS]
