Guided Hikes & Adventures

We offer a Guided Hike & Outdoor Adventure Series each Spring and Fall. Other programs are offered throughout the year and will be listed here when available. These FREE events offer natural beauty and exercise for the entire family but donations to help preserve green space are accepted!

RESERVATION IS REQUIRED. Sign up at the link provided below each event listing. Space is limited to ensure quality and safety. There is no waitlist. We intentionally overbook to account for cancellations but if spots become available we’ll reopen the registration link on this page. Priority registration for Land Trust members for most events. Please register by 5 PM on Friday before weekend hikes.

*NEW FOR 2020* Our fall hike series is exclusive to Land Trust members only. We have reduced capacity for all hikes to ensure a safe environment for all participants and face coverings are required when 6ft distancing is not possible.

  • bottled water
  • hiking sticks
  • trail snacks
  • a camera to capture the experience
  • dogs welcome, but must be on leads.
  • face covering required when 6ft distancing is not possible

In case of rain, hikes may be cancelled. Please verify cancellation here or on our Facebook Page. For additional information, please call 256-534-5263 or email questions@landtrustnal.org. Our office is closed on Saturday & Sunday.
