We're proud to share miles of trails for open hiking on our property for Moonshadow Festival visitors. Hikers will be required to sign out and in when leaving the main grounds, and take adequate water supply when going into the forests. Water is not provided on any of the trails.
The Watertrough Loop is the designated route for Saturday's Poker Hike, which begins at 10:30am. This activity is free and open to all who can complete the easy-to-moderate hike (400 foot elevation climb). Hikers will embark on a self-led hike, starting out by picking up a poker scorecard and drawing the first of five cards that will make up their poker hand. Extra hands can be purchased in the festival grounds before starting the hike (we encourage all Poker Hike participants to start the hike by 12:30pm to ensure completion before 1:30pm when scorecards are due.)
Across the 3.5 mile hike (moderate hike, 400 foot elevation gain), hikers will stop at four additional checkpoints along the way to draw additional cards for their hand. Once the hike ends, all cards will be turned in at the General Store and scored. Whoever has the best poker hand wins first choice from the available prizes. Second best hand wins the 2nd choice, third best hand wins third choice, and so on.
