Creek Ranger Hike

The Creek Ranger Hike is a 1-mile, ranger-led walk to Mountain Creek and back, searching for animals and their homes. Participants wade into the creek and use a net to find animals that live in the water. Participants should bring water shoes if they have them, but the park has some available if needed.
