First Day Hike at Mormon Island SRA

January 1

Kick off the New Year with a First Day Hike at Mormon Island State Recreation Area! This is a one-mile self-guided hike along the Platte River Trail.

There will be Winter Scavenger Hunt forms available to pick up at the Park’s Free Outdoor Library Box located in front of the Park Information Booth at the entrance. Use this scavenger hunt form to take you on a hike anywhere in the Park to find the wildlife, their signs left behind, and some of the habitat that they use. The park lakes, campgrounds, and trails may have to be hiked to find what is on the scavenger hunt.

As you are out in the park, please take pictures of your favorite scenes and of you and your family having fun and hashtag #NebraskaCentralParks and tag us in your photos so that we can share in your adventure on your First Day Hike.
