MOUNT AYR — Join Ringgold County Conservation Board for a Dare the Dark Hike 10:30 p.m. July 19 at Poe Hollow Park, east of Mount Ayr on State Highway 2.

Registration for the hike will be at Hawkins Hideaway Shelter (enclosed shelter) and a guide will lead participants to the beginning of the trail. Individuals/froups of no more than four will leave every 10 minutes from the shelterhouse and travel from the Poe Hollow west trail to the Ringgold Trailway and come back on the east trail into Poe Hollow, around the pond trail and meet back at the shelterhouse.

Individuals who complete the Dare the Dark challenge will be entered into a drawing for Florida Georgia Line tickets at the Iowa State Fair (Sponsored by Jamie’s Coffee Mill).

No running, flashlights or cell phone lights are permitted. Participants will receive glow sticks for the hike. Entry fees for this event are adults $10 and students $5. All proceeds of this event go toward funding the Ringgold County Nature Center.
