First Day Hike – Hiking through History

Join the team at Hiwassee/Ocoee State Park for a First Day Hike of 2022 and hike through history! The park is located in an area rich in history and culture, so make plans to enjoy this easy-to-moderate 2-mile round trip hike. Meet at the park’s Visitor Center, and be sure to wear sturdy shoes and bring your own water. Along the way, you’ll learn about Native American life and culture along the Hiwassee River, the history of the old town of Austral and see remnants of it, and learn how the park came to be.
