Annual Event in Allegany State Park

Allegany State Park will once again be part of New York State Parks’ First Day celebration. Get your New Year off to a great start with a hike in the beautiful park on Thursday, Jan. 1, 2015.

First Day encourages the public to kick off their New Year by spending some enjoyable time in their local state park. This year’s hike will take place on Wolf Run Road in the Quaker Run area of Allegany State Park.

This easy guided hike, suitable for all ages, will take you 3 miles into the Wolf Run area, where you’ll explore its history, its majestic winter scenery, and its flora and fauna that make the valley’s hills and hollows their home.

If the weather permits, snowshoes are welcome, as well as sleds for small children to ride on. A packed and marked trail will be created prior to the event for those not wearing snowshoes.

The hike will begin at 10 a.m. Participants are asked to take Route 280 South at the intersection of ASP Route 3 and Route 280 and meet at Wolf Run Road.

Pre-registration is not required but recommended. For registration and more information, please contact John Snyder at (716) 354-9101 x269.
