Riverside State Park First Day Hike

Friday, January 1, 2016

Combine a great workout, an outdoor adventure and a history lesson? You betcha! If the weather is cooperative, we’ll head through the Ponderosa pines and down the Deep Creek Interpretive Trail. If the snow is deep, your ranger guide will take you down Centennial Trail. Gain a deeper understanding of the Riverside State Park environment and an insight into the men who served in the Civilian Conservation Corps and who built this gem of a mountain forest park.

Meet at the Deep Creek parking lot, N. State Park Drive (off of 7 Mile Road).

Wear warm clothes, bring gloves, camera, water, hiking boots or shoes and possibly snowshoes.

Difficulty: Moderate

Pets are allowed but must be kept on a leash.

For Cancellation Information Call (509) 465-5064 or to contact the on-duty ranger the day of the hike call (509) 850-5109.

About First Day Hikes: 

America’s State Parks ‘First Day Hikes’ are a national initiative organized more than 25 years ago by the National Association of State Park Directors. Since 2013, all 50 state park systems have participated in the First Day Hikes program. 

January 1 is also a Washington State Parks ‘Free Day.’ Participants will not need to display the Discover Pass on vehicles to access state parks for the New Year’s Day activities. Some events taking place in Sno-Park areas will require Sno-Park permits.
