Guided ice hikes
Feb. 27/MARSHALL– Experience Turkey Run State Park’s canyons in a new way with guided ice hikes. Participants will be led through either Rocky Hollow, Bear Hollow, or Gypsy Gulch, depending on the date. All ice hikes require advance registration. Boot spikes, which allow for safer hiking on ice and snow than boots alone, will be provided for participants. Those wishing to join must wear the boots and be able to lift both legs to a 90-degree angle. All ice hikes are subject to change due to weather conditions. Depending on the weather, routes may be changed, and spikes may not be necessary. Face coverings are required. Register by calling 765-597-2635 or email adouglass@dnr.IN.gov. Boot spikes can also be rented from the park’s Nature Center for individual hikes for $5 a day. The center is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day, and a naturalist will be available to assist guests in getting the boot spikes on properly. Standard park entrance fees of $7 per in-state vehicle and $9 per out-of-state vehicle may apply.
