Winter Hikes

McFarland Park, Story County

Thursday, January 28, 2021

Get out of the house with other outdoor enthusiasts and explore local public areas this winter.

Hikes begin at 1:30 p.m. and are expected to last no more than two hours. The hikes may vary from good exercise to a social stroll and will end with snacks and beverages (bring your own). Cold, wind, snow, rain, and ice are all possible! Hikes will go on as long as the roads are safe to drive.

These hikes are free but registration is required by 4:00 p.m. on the Tuesday prior to each hike. Contact the Outdoor Alliance of Story County with questions at: 

Parking note: Meet at the west end of the parking lot. 

Our top priority has been and will continue to be the health and well-being of the public and the staff. In response to the ongoing development of COVID-19, Story County Conservation programs will adhere to social distancing, smaller group size, increased sanitation and face coverings mandatory when social distancing is not possible or while indoors. Pre-registration will be required when group size needs to be limited due to the facility or location.
