Start the new year off with a First Day Hike at Platte River State Park!
Meet at 9 a.m. at the Walter Scott Lodge and join our Park Naturalists for a hike along the falls trail. Following the hike, warm up by the fireplace with hot cocoa or cider and Naturalists will have an activity for the kids.
Enjoy the beauty of our parks, the health benefits of hiking, and the chance to gather with others. Prepare for your winter hike: dress in layers, wear a hat, bring a warm/insulated water bottle and check the forecast. Start a new tradition by inviting some friends along to the parks.
Programs may be altered depending on the temperature and/or trail conditions. Please call ahead if there are weather advisories in the area.
A Valid 2023 Vehicle Park Permit is required.
