The 2017 Mayor’s Fall Hike along Cedar Creek will take place Saturday, November 4th beginning at 8:00 A.M. This is a FREE, family friendly event that is open to the public and leashed dogs are welcome to join. Due to the terrain of the trail, strollers and bikes are not allowed.  

The hike will begin where Cedar Creek crosses the 100 block of E.S. 11th Street, just east of Joe Allen’s Bar-B-Que. Participants will travel north along the bank of Cedar Creek to Stevenson Park then return by the same trail. The hike route is approximately 3 miles long. Parking will be available at 170 E.S. 11th Street and signage will direct hikers to the designated parking area. 

Some recommendations to ensure a fun-filled and safe hike:

  • Bring water and sunscreen along
