The hike will be lead by expert trailmaster Wanda Shirk who is a lifetime member of the Friends of Lyman Run and who also had been involved for years with the Susquehanna Trail Club, Keystone Trail Association and many more.
Participants should dress for the day's weather and wear appropriate footwear for walking in the snow. Following the hike there will be hot chocolate and hot cider at the park office. This event is free and we are hoping many of you will plan to spend the first day of the year in nature.
