Officials at Henry Horton State Park are challenging residents to walk 50 miles in 50 days through Thursday, Feb. 28, 2013, as part of the annual 50-Day Challenge.
Interested walkers are asked to visit the Henry Horton State Park office to receive a 50-Day Challenge packet, including information on trail lengths, a record sheet for daily miles and park map.
Henry Horton State Parks boasts four great hiking trails and a one-mile picnic area loop that are available for use every day: the Hickory Ridge Loop, the Wilhoite Mill, the Wild Turkey Trail and the Adeline Wilhoite-Horton Nature Trail.
“This time of year is when we generally consume more calories, and the 50-Day Challenge will give walkers an opportunity to burn up some of those calories – all in a beautiful park setting,” said Randy Whitworth, park manager. “We hope everyone will join us in keeping healthy and fit throughout the holiday season.”
Henry Horton is a 1,532-acre state park with four hiking trails. It is also well known for its championship 18-hole golf course, inn and cabins, campgrounds and trap and skeet range.
