Join park staff for a 3.5 mile hike on Poplar Springs Trail to kick off your New Year right with your four legged friend!
We encourage participants to bring their dogs along for this pet-friendly hike, however, participants without dogs are more than welcome, too! The trail will take you through the forests of Merkle Wildlife Sanctuary, passing by our award winning poplar tree. Afterwards, refreshments will be served at the Visitor’s Center where you’re welcome to stop in, learn about the history of the park, and meet some of our resident animals.
Families are encouraged to call Merkle Wildlife Sanctuary at 443-510-9920 to register, or contact Kyle Prinkey at [email protected]
