See you there!
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.
At the last festival, more than 100 visitors took a beautiful one or two mile Nature Walk through the Forest and discover more about the mountains' flora and fauna! You can choose between a guided tour or to walk independently. Those who successfully complete the two mile walk will receive this cool commemorative Pine Cone Festival pin. Those who do the shorter one mile walk and receive a Festival magnet. This year we are adding a three mile walk! If you are up for the full three miles you will receive a special Smokey Bear pin! Thanks to Church of the Woods and Rim Nordic for sponsoring this activity.
