From January through April, Monroe Lake will offer guided hikes twice a month, leading participants on off-trail adventures to lesser-known areas of the property.
Each trek on the Winter Exploration Hike Series will last 90 minutes to two hours.
Monroe Lake naturalist Jill Vance will lead the hikes. The hikes are free, but advance registration is required.
Vance recommends the hikes for ages 12 and older.
Because of parking restrictions, the March and April hikes are capped at 10 participants.
Details and registration information for each hike are at stateparks.IN.gov/2954.htm.
For more information, contact Jill Vance at jvance@dnr.IN.gov, or (812) 837-9967.
