With the white stuff coming down, Hillview Park has opened their tubing hill and a snow hike is in the works.
The county park, located just west of Hinton on county road C-60, offers tubing Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. if there is sufficient snow cover. Tubing costs $5. The hill can also be rented to private groups on weeknights from 6 to 8 p.m. or 7 to 9 p.m. The hill is open from now until the end of February.
The hike, exploring the park with naturalist Victoria Shamblen, is slated for Dec. 15th from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. She also plans to talk about how animals prepare for winter. To sign up for the hike or for more information, contact Shamblen at the park at 712-947-4270 by Wednesday, Dec. 12.
