Mini Hikers | One

Kids hiking

Summer at ACES is the perfect time to introduce your five or six year-old to hiking! This week we’ll learn the fundamentals of hiking as we learn about the magical wilderness of Hallam Lake and beyond. We'll set out on mini hikes to explore places like nearby. Learn to pack the essentials into a backpack that’s light enough to carry on all of your hiking adventures. It’s never too early to become a superstar hiker!

What To Bring:

Pack a backpack with snack, lunch, reusable water bottle, rain jacket, warm layer, sunscreen, hat, and sunglasses. Please remember to label everything. Wear appropriate clothing and sturdy, closed-toed shoes - no open-toe sandals!

How To Get There:

Please walk, bike, bus, or carpool to ACES at Hallam Lake whenever possible! Parking is extremely limited and alternate transportation is fun and saves the planet.

BIKE BOARD CHALLENGE: In the summer, every time you come to Hallam Lake in something other than your own car you will earn a sticker to place on our Bike Board. Bike Board participants are entered to win great prizes all summer long including local gift certificates, bike accessories, ACES classes, reusable bags, and more. 

PARKING LOT: Limited parking is available for Hallam Lake visitors only. Please park efficiently. Drop-off overflow parking for Hallam Lake programs is available in the West End (2 hour free parking) with an easy walk down the stairs to the center. We are an IDLE FREE community.
