About This Event
Nothing can be better than a sunset hike, haunted campfire, and s’mores surrounded by the beautiful Ozarks! Our afternoon will start with an incredible 2.5 mile hike through Withrow Springs State Park, featuring a cave, springs, a bluff, and a breathtaking view of War Eagle Creek. On the way back, we will stop at a campground where Todd Wilkinson from the James River Basin Partnership will share some stories from Vance Randolph’s Ozark Magic and Folklore book, where magic and history come together for a perfect campfire experience. We will make s’mores and enjoy this Halloween fall night together then head back to Springfield.
