Sponsored by the Florida State Parks on January 1 of each year

As part of our organization’s mission, the Friends provide supplies for hikers exploring the behind-the-scene trails on the Weeki Wachee property. Hikes are organized by state parks across the country, and vary from short walks to longer treks. These guided walks offer a variety of ways for people to get outdoors and start off the new year right!

Grab your K-9 friend and take your first step into the new by joining us on a tour into the woods by an official Park Ranger! The hikes is about a 3-mile round trip. Guests are expected to wear sturdy hiking shoes and comfortable clothing, and wear sunscreen and bug spray. Dogs must be on a leash, well behaved, and get along with other dogs.
