Join Park Rangers and Librarians from the McCreary County Public Library for a fun children’s Storytime about autumn on Saturday, October 21st. We will meet at the Yamacraw day use parking lot under the Highway 92 Bridge at 10:30 AM ET.

We will hike 1.2 miles over flat terrain to Princess Falls. Once we arrive we will cross the creek below the falls and have Storytime at the picnic area before heading back to the Yamacraw Bridge. This round trip hike will cover 2.4 total miles along the Sheltowee Trace National Recreation Trail.

Families can also meet at the McCreary County Library at 10:00 AM ET and follow staff to the Yamacraw Trailhead. Please bring water and wear weather and hike appropriate clothing and footwear.

This is a great opportunity to work towards your Big South Fork Junior Ranger badge as well as this year’s GOBIG patch. The Go Big 2017 Challenge is a year-long, self-paced, park-wide event created to encourage you to go out and explore YOUR Park.
