Whiskeytown National Recreation Area is offering seven free ranger-led hikes in November 2021, with the first beginning on November 6. These hikes will provide a fun, educational opportunity to learn more about the region while getting a little exercise in the outdoors.

These hikes are open to the public and dogs on leash are allowed and encouraged. The ranger-led hikes enable visitors to explore the park’s diverse trail system with a park ranger and learn about Whiskeytown’s natural and cultural history. For dogs and dog owners, B.A.R.K. Ranger Activity Books will be available and you and your faithful companion can become official Whiskeytown National Recreation Area B.A.R.K. Rangers!

While entrance passes are required to recreate in the park, there is no additional fee for the ranger-led hikes. Visitors should bring water and wear close-toed shoes. Programs will be cancelled if substantial rain is forecasted.

In order to serve as many different hiker skill levels and visitors as possible, the ranger-led hikes vary in length and difficulty. The Crystal Creek Falls and Guardian Rock ranger-led hikes are fully wheelchair accessible; they are on paved trails that are mostly flat and short. Hikes such as Davis Gulch and particularly Whiskeytown Falls are more strenuous.
