About This Event
What could be better than a gorgeous hike through the Ozark mountains? To do it with a group of goats leading the way - DRESSED IN CHRISTMAS BELLS! Join us for this insanely unique day exploring the Ozarks with our friends from Snake Mountain Pack Goats, a non-profit that allows veterans with disabilities or PTSD to get outside more often with the assistance of pack goats. Their trips offer both physical and mental benefits to those that gave so much, so that we can enjoy our time outdoors!
We will do a 3.5 mile loop hike around Devil’s Den State Park, where we will get to see waterfalls, caves and incredible views of the landscape. The goats can amaze you by carrying some of your baggage or just entertain you as they lead the way with incredible balance with their packs and saddles on their backs! Along the way, we will learn about the local flora and fauna as well as the natural history of this incredible area.
After our hike, we will head to family-friendly Sassafras Springs Winery for some wine tasting and relaxation. You will be sure to head home refreshed from the day outside and with many selfies with your new 4-legged friends!
Ages 12 and up. Registration includes transportation, expert guides, and a $25 donation to Snake Mountain Pack Goats for their work with veterans.
