PELHAM – For those who don’t want to participate in the chaos of Black Friday, Oak Mountain State Park will have just the event for you.

On Friday, Nov. 26, outdoor enthusiasts will be able to participate in a guided hike through Oak Mountain’s trails. The hike will take hikers through the White Trail up to Maggie’s Glenn on an approximately 2.5 mile journey through OMSP’s scenic landscape.

Guests are asked to meet at the North Trailhead at 10 a.m.  Friday morning. The hike will be a family friendly event, but not stroller friendly. Pets are allowed as long as they are on a leash. Guests are encouraged to bring a bottle of water, a camera for photos and snacks. The park reminds attendees to please not litter.

The hike is free after guests have paid their Oak Mountain entrance fee. Gate fees are $5 ages 12 and up, $2 ages 4-11; $2 ages 62 and up. Free for ages 3 and under and also for veterans.
