Saturday, Jan. 1, Sailor’s Creek Battlefield Historical State Park will host our annual First Day Hike Program from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This year’s event will be a self-guided Scavenger Hunt starting at the Visitor Center, with clues found on all of our hiking trails and a few other points of interest. Those who successfully complete the challenge will receive a commemorative prize.

Pets are welcome, but must be kept on a leash no longer than six feet and under control at all times. Wear layered clothing and closed-toe footwear appropriate for hiking in cold weather and uneven terrain.

This event is free to the public. For additional information, call the park at 804-561-7510 or email

Face coverings are highly encouraged in all park facilities and where social distancing is not possible.
