November is 'Hike the Buffalo' month in the Ozarks
All ages of hikers are encouraged to attend as each trail is rated easy. Allow a minimum of three hours for hiking, plus travel time.
Cindy Miller, director of Healthy Kids Healthy Ozarks said: “The Healthy Kids Healthy Ozarks program is excited to be involved in this project. Our goal is to encourage families to become more active, and by doing so become healthier.
"Hiking is a wonderful way to gain much needed exercise, and at the same time have quality family time and meet new people. Each of the trails that have been selected is very easy and perfect for all fitness levels. Hikers that wish to walk fast can do so, and if you want to be leisurely in your walk that is okay also. There is no pressure on these hikes as we are there to have fun.”
It is recommended to wear comfortable, warm clothing in layers so you can easily add or decrease layers as the day heats up or gets cooler. It is also suggested to wear comfortable hiking shoes, as well as, to bring water, snacks and a lunch. Pack all in a small backpack for easy transport.
For more information on the scheduled hikes, contact Healthy Kids Healthy Ozarks Director Cindy Miller at (870) 391-3523, or contact the Harrison Convention & Visitors Bureau at (870) 741-1789.
