First Day Hike at Greenwood Furnace State Park

Come out on Wednesday, the 1st day of January at 12 noon, for our fifth annual 1st Day Hike! We will be hiking the famous “Vista Loop,” a five mile loop starting/ending at the Greenwood Furnace Park Office using the SST, Turkey tr., Lorence tr. and Monsell tr. This hike is 5 miles long with about 1,000 feet of climb to the glorious Stone Valley Vista. Portions of the trail are rocky and steep. Wearing layers is a good idea so that you can adjust your temperature for the climb up to the vista and descent back to the park. Approximate hiking time varies from 2-4 hours. It is impossible to keep the whole group together for this long hike, but we will have a designated “sweep” to make sure everyone finishes, and we will wait at the Park Office until the “sweep” returns with the last hikers. We will be enjoying coffee, hot cocoa, and cookies with the Standing Stone Trail Club after the hike; please feel free to bring cookies to share.
