Hi! My name is CHEEKERS. I hope to see you at this year's Pine Cone Festival!
Join me at the new
NOTE: Festival is held IN the forest, walking area is a natural surface, flat with some irregularities as this is not a paved or concrete trail.
Want to explore the environment? Enjoy a Nature Walk through the forest at our annual Pine Cone Festival this year! Enjoy the pines, firs, cedars and stream beds as you stroll the forest floor. There are three distance options for you to choose: 1 mile loop, 2 mile loop, and a 3 mile loop. At the mid-point in each loop is a self-administered stamp for your trail guide, showing proof that you met your walking goal. Bring the stamped trail guide back to our nature walk booth for a beautiful free Pine Cone Festival logo magnet, metal logo lapel pin, or the Smokey Bear Pin (depending on your distance choice). This year a 3-mile loop has been added! You will get both pins and a special Smokey Bear gift! The trail guide features beautiful pictures and descriptions of natural environmental elements you will discover on your walk. The walking trails are on forest service roads and established trails, easy to moderate walking, depending on distance choice. This is a Festival activity favorite and we hope you will join us this year for the Nature Walk! The Nature Walk info booth is just to the left of the main entertainment stage. Hope to see you there!
