9 – 11 a.m. — First Day Hike — Start the New Year off right with Roan Mountain State Park’s First Hike of 2018. Join a Park Ranger for a winter morning hike along the frosty Doe River. Meet at Picnic Shelter 3 in the Campground. We will be hiking approximately 1 mile out and 1 mile back along the Tom Gray Trail. Please be prepared for cold, windy, and perhaps even snowy conditions as the average January temperature in Roan Mountain is 24 degrees! Following the hike, we will warm up with hot chocolate at Picnic Shelter 3.

Please register in advance for this event.

**NOTE from Roan Mountain State Park — Bridge Closures: Due to damage sustained during a recent flood event on the Doe River, there are two trail bridges in the park that are no longer available. The bridge connecting the wetland boardwalk trail to Picnic Shelter 2 is gone, as is the bridge connecting the Group Camp area to the Riverside Trail. Walking access along the western bank of the Doe River is still available via the Riverside Trail access point from Picnic Shelter 2 or via the Fred Behrend Trail access behind the Camp Store in the Campground. Thank you for your patience as we work to replace these bridges.
