Newborn Stroller Hike

This program is designed for new parents to explore the outdoors with their newborn children (less than 1 year). This stroller hike will start off in the Harrison Avenue Parking Lot (which has bathrooms with running water and an area to change babies) and walk 1/2 mile (1 mile round trip) staying on a paved road. For those wanting to continue on with more more robust strollers or other child carriers, there is an option to continue another half a mile down to Reedy Creek Lake on our Multi-Use Trail. This program serves a great opportunity for new parents and guardians to get outside with their babies, converse with other new parents, and meet other new moms and dads in our area. *Strollers are not needed, babies can be carried in backpacks and other carriers as well.*

Program Length: 1 hour
Reservations required. Limited to 10 Adults. Please call the visitor center at 919-571-4170 to make reservations.
