Participants will take a one-mile hike to the river for picnicking and swimming or wading in the water. This event allows families an opportunity to view the solitude of nature in a protected property, especially for families with children.

Lunch will not be provided, so guests are encouraged to pack their own. Walking or light hiking shoes, water shoes, sunscreen, and swimsuits are also advised.
