fort ontario new year hike

On New Year’s Day 2018 at 10:00 AM Friends of Fort Ontario Americorps staffer Corey King will lead a unique First Day Hike around the 75-acre Fort Ontario National Registered District. Hikers will register and assemble inside the Old Stone Fort and march about one mile at a moderate pace around the buildings, grounds, foundations, roads, and locations of battles and significant events in the fort’s 263-year history. Mr. King will narrate the free tour and provide musical accompaniment at points of musical history. First Day Hikes are a nationwide National Park Service initiative in cooperation with New York State Parks that encourage people to begin the New Year by reconnecting with the outdoors. Hikers are advised to dress appropriately for brisk wind and weather conditions off Lake Ontario. Leashed dogs are welcome! Refreshments will be provided before and after the tour which is free and open to the public. The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation oversees 179 state parks and 35 historic sites, which are visited by more than 60 million people annually. Fort Ontario State Historic Site is located at the north end of East 4th Street in the City Oswego. In case of bad weather and possible cancellation, check the Friends of Fort Ontario Facebook page [Fort Ontario] for updates. Pre-registration is not a requirement, but is encouraged. Contact Corey King for more information. You can call or email at (315) 343-4711 [
