Get active at Knob Noster State Park on the annual Family Health and Fitness Day!
Join park staff on a guided hike around Lake Buteo, where they will learn about the seven Leave No Trace Principles and enjoy the beauty the lake has to offer. The hike is expected to last 1.5 hours and is one mile long. This hike is good for all ages and skill levels. Participants are welcome to bring their favorite leashed four-legged family members, too.
This dirt-surfaced trail does get wet and muddy after rain, has a water crossing in which hikers must cross Buteo Lake's spillway via strategically placed rocks and stone steps, and, for a very short distance, the trail is along a park road. Be sure to where sunscreen and bug spray while enjoying the outdoors. Bring a water bottle and always remember to Leave No Trace.
