Start the New Year off right in Sackets Harbor at the NYS Parks annual First Day Hike on Sunday, Jan 1, from 1 to 3 pm, beginning at the Union Hotel building, at 401 West Main Street.
Sign-in for the hike and register for your chance to win a free Empire Pass at the magnificent Union Hotel building in Sackets Harbor, where you’ll also receive a free hike souvenir and a map of the Village trails. Then you’ll be ready to experience Sackets Harbor’s scenic landscape and discover our history.
The suggested 2-mile course traverses flat surfaces and offers sweeping vistas of Black River Bay, wide open space farm fields, sheltered woods, and village streets.
For a shorter hike, a free activity sheet leads hikers on part of the Battlefield Historic Site’s History Trail loop, using interpretive panels to test participants’ observation skills.
The Sackets Harbor Battlefield State Historic Site and the New York State Parks Department work together to put on this free community event.
