Join the Lakeside Nature Center, located within Swope Park, for a free guided trail hike.
The guided walk/hike, which focuses on habitats around the center, typically occurs on the upper Fox Hollow trail which is primarily covered with rock and accessible for most participants. However, depending on the Naturalist and topic of the hike, another part of the Fox Hollow Trail might also be incorporated, which may be a little more challenging for some hikers.
All scheduled hikes are open to the public. There is no fee. Hikes will be cancelled in severe weather – call the center (816-513-8960) for confirmation. Please dress appropriately for the weather of the day (i.e. raingear, layers of clothing for cold weather, sunscreen and hats for warm weather, insect repellent, closed-toed shoes or boots).
The hike begins at 10:30 AM. Please gather outside the main doors of Lakeside Nature Center. There the naturalist will meet hikers, outline the plans for the day and then lead the group on the trail.
