Hike on in 2017!


Gather your friends to explore the Washington County Parks Trail system for guided fitness hikes.

1-hour hikes involve a warm-up and fitness challenges along the way. Trails are a mix of turf, gravel, grass, snow and pavement depending on trail conditions, time of year and location. Please plan to arrive 10 minutes early. If light rain, class will go on as scheduled. For ages 13+ (all minors must be accompanied by an adult).

These programs are free with a parks vehicle permit ($7/day or $30/annual) with the exception of Free Tuesdays and the Historic Courthouse. For Historic Courthouse hikes we do ask for a $10 donation/person to support the restoration fund.
