Let’s face it – while Head for the Hills is a fantastic educational event, it also reflects the old adage, “location, location, location.” Why do the educational sessions end at 12:30 each day? So you can go have fun!
Head for the Hills will be held again this year at the Breaks Interstate Park. It will be October, so the fall leaves will be at their peak. That means:
“Bountiful nature, as richly colored as our mosses underfoot, our mountains on the horizon, and our sky overhead.”
The Breaks Interstate Park boasts 4600 acres, more than 25 miles of walking trails, and a 5-mile gorge plunging to 1650 feet known as the “Grand Canyon of the South.” Activities include guided hikes, biking, geocaching, birding, pedal boats/canoes and fishing (some activities have a fee).
If you’ve been to the Breaks before, that might sound too familiar, so check out their new activity – Elk Watching!
Not into the great outdoors? You can venture off site to the Ralph Stanley museum in neighboring Clintwood, or ACT Theatre in Elkhorn, KY.
Bringing the kids? There is child care available during the educational sessions, hay rides later in the day, a playground, and magician Joseph Young!
