2023 Hare Mountain Hike In
The 2023 Hare Mountain Hike In, a celebration to commemorate the 1981 birth of the Ozark Highlands Trail Association, will be held November 4-5, 2023.
If you want to be a part of 2023’s special occasion, there are multiple locations from which to start your hike. However, the spot closest to where everyone will camp on Hare Mountain is the Hare Mountain/Morgan Field Trailhead (can be located on the Ozark Highlands Trail—West map available in OHTA’s online store). From there it is a mere 1.7 mile hike to the top.
This year’s Hike In will include a potluck dinner on Saturday evening, so please remember to bring something tasty to contribute to the feast. In addition, presentations will be made for the winner of the Maintainer of the Year Award, Dawna Robinson Member of the Year Award, and the Trail Ranger Award (a lifetime achievement award).
There is plenty of room to camp, but be sure to pack in all the water you will need. Come one, come all. This is a perfect opportunity to introduce someone who is new to hiking to the spectacular beauty of the Ozark mountains and the unparalleled experience of primitive camping.
