First Day Hike at Dr. Edmund A. Babler Memorial State Park

Join us for Babler's first hike of the year. We will be hiking the Hawthorn Trail, located across from the Alta Shelter. Hawthorn Trail is approximately 1 ¼ miles long, making it the park's shortest trail. However, it contains a diversity of geology found nowhere else in the park. 

A short distance from the trailhead before the loop begins, Hawthorn crosses the Equestrian Trail. Continuing straight past the intersection, it goes along the northeast side of a narrow ridge and returns on the southwestern side.

There will be refreshments on hand at the Alta Shelter.
