A hike will be held on Thursday Oct. 10, beginning at 10 a.m. at Locust Lake State Park, in Barnesville. The hike will explore the mountain behind the park and visit the Silver Creek Fire Tower. The hike is eight miles in length and moderate in difficulty.

The pine stands and brush are perfect habitat for birds and other wildlife. Participants should meet at the visitor parking lot of the park which is located before the contact station. Bring a bag lunch and pets are allowed for a relaxing hike in the woods.

All pets must be leashed and get along with people and other pets. For further information contact Robin Tracey at 570-467-2506. Shine only.
