Earn points towards your 2017 GO Big patch by joining a Park Ranger Wednesday, August 3rd at 2:30 pm (ET) on a healthy hike along part of the Blue Heron loop trail. Meet at the Blue Heron Interpretive Center’s Train Depot at the end of Kentucky route 742 for a moderate but steep 2.4 mile hike. This two hour out and back hike will take visitors through one of the most interesting rock formations in the park, Crack-in-the-Rocks and will summit at Blue Heron overlook. Answer questions in your GOBig booklet and take in one of the best views in the park on Wednesday August 23rd at 2:30 PM (ET). Please wear weather appropriate clothing and bring water and snacks. Hikers are encouraged to bring well-behaved dogs; however, leashes are required and there is a set of steep stairs.

The GO BIG 2017 Challenge is a year-long park-wide event designed to motivate visitors to go out and explore their park. Participants will earn points by answering questions about the park, becoming a volunteer, taking part in NPS programs and events as well as hiking, biking or paddling in the Big South Fork NRRA. If you earn 100 points you will receive a GO BIG 2017 Challenge patch and awards will be given at the GO BIG 2017 Celebration on December 9th.
