Latest update on Dam to Dam Hike 5-17-23 – Due to the severe weather last week, the Trail System sustained a great deal of washout as well as damage across many facilities and streets, etc. Unfortunately, this is causing us to cancel this year’s Dam to Dam Hike on Saturday, May 20th. Thank you for your understanding.
