"Hiking Jefferson County" On Friday, May 28th, Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park will host the free talk entitled “Hiking Jefferson County” at 8:00 PM in the park’s campground amphitheater. It will be presented by Vaia Errett, a local volunteer and hiking enthusiast.

This talk will lead you through Jefferson County - into the hideaways of the Elkhorn Mountains, the granite knuckles of the Boulder Mountains, the southern sagebrush hills, two state parks (Lewis & Clark Caverns and Elkhorn) - and the overlooked routes and trailheads in-between. Follow from rambling creek to high peak, from wooded gulch to the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail. There is a favorite for everyone.

This is the first presentation in Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park’s annual Friday Summer Speakers Series, which introduces a new speaker each Friday at 8:00 PM throughout the summer.

Vaia Errett will hatch any pretext to hike a trail. Always eager to roam beyond familiar turf, she has recently found herself drawn to the detail closer to home. For the past 3 years, Vaia has served as one of 7 volunteers on the Jefferson County Parks, Trails, and Recreation Commission. She lives in Whitehall.

What: "Hiking Jefferson County" with Vaia Errett When: May, 28th at 8:00 PM Where: Campground amphitheater at Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park
