Rigorous Hike with GNHA (Greenville Natural History Association Hiking Club
Paris Mountain State Park: Community-Led Outdoor Activities
By registration only, we are offering several community led activities within the park. Choose from trail running, paddling, fishing, mountain biking, a rigorous hike, or a gentler interpretive nature walk. Check back as we may be able to add additional activities. Afterwards, we’ll reconvene post-activity for a cool dip and cold treats at the Park Center!
These are volunteer led activities by members of community organizations. Registration and a waiver form from the park are required to participate.
