Rare remnants of the tallgrass prairie, as well as woodlands, wildflowers, and rocky shoreline bluffs await hikers on this fall hike near the confluence of the Washita and Red Rivers.
After spending a month traveling around and hiking in the Sierra’s, Candice is even more excited about leading this hike. Candice is currently in graduate school studying Clinical Mental Health Counseling at the Southeastern Oklahoma State University.
I organized a hike for mental health because it’s a great way to get our community moving outside while simultaneously bringing support and awareness to those who struggle with mental health. It’s a small way to take in the joy and serenity that can be found when you make some time to enjoy our parks.
I chose Eisenhower State Park because it has great views of the lake and is really accessible to a lot of people in both Texas and Oklahoma.
Registration for Candice’s hike is free. And Eisenhower State Park has generously waived their entrance fee for all hike participants that day.
All hikers who raise $100 or more from their sponsorship page will receive a free HIKE for Mental Health quick-dry shirt.
