Venue: Hills Creek State Park  |  City: Wellsboro

The 2019 Winter Outings Series will start on New Year's Day, Tuesday, Jan. 1 with two different options. Meet at Hills Creek State Park’s beach parking area to participate in either one. Dress for the weather, wear proper footwear and bring water and snacks.

Option #1 is an easy First Day Hike to explore nature in winter. This will be a slow-paced, family oriented hike of less than 1.5 miles on Tauscher’s Trail. If conditions allow, a limited supply of snowshoes and traction devices will be available for those interested in giving them a try or can bring their own. At 1pm, hikers will cheer on 5K participants before leaving on their own adventure.

Option #2 is the First Day 5K. Runners should arrive at 12:30pm to register at the beach area and pick up course information and details before the 1pm start. The 5K is a free, no frills event. There are no aid stations and no awards. Participants write down their own times. The goal is for those in the 5K to challenge themselves and their friends by running around Hills Creek Lake on a mix of trails and roads as fast as they can.

Sledding Hill is nearby so families are also welcome to bring their own sleds, tubes or toboggans and give the hill a try, weather conditions permitting or explore other park trails or the roads throughout the park.
