Nature hike visits Hidden Creek Trail

The Friends of the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge is hosting a nature hike on Hidden Creek Trail on Saturday, starting at 9 a.m. The trailhead starts at Mile 5.7 on Skilak Lake Road. It begins at a 500-foot elevation, passing through woods to Skilak Lake at 195 feet elevation, and has a round-trip distance of three miles. There are some boggy spots and a few small streams to cross, so waterproof boots are advised.

This hike is the start of a year-long activities program by the Friends group with hikes in the refuge planned for each month. Interested hikers can meet at the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge Visitors Center to begin the carpool to the trailhead. For more information, contact Amy George at 260-6163 or 262-7021.
