Walking Sticks for All
Join a park ranger to locate, collect and craft your own personal walking stick!
Meet Park Manager Thurman at the Visitor Center to set out to find your own personal walking stick that you can later customize to your liking. Paracord and a Bledsoe Creek State Park hiking medallion will be provided to make your hiking stick official. Discuss the type, size, and shape of tree/limb you should be looking for before you embark on a 2-to-3-mile hike. Only downed or dead specimens will be considered for walking sticks and MUST be cleared by the ranger on the hike BEFORE any sawing occurs. Bow saws will be loaned out for cutting of walking sticks and shall be returned at hike’s end.
