5Maury County Park Hosts ‘The Hike’ at the Storybook Trail

Begins Friday, March 1
Maury County Park
1018 Maury County Park Dr, Columbia.

The Storybook Trail, located along the Nature Trail in Maury County Park, hosts monthly, seasonal stories that the entire family can enjoy.

The March story is “The Hike” by Alison Farrel. With lyrical language that captures the majesty of the natural world coupled with fun narrative featured throughout, this spirited picture book tells the victorious story of three girls’ friendship – and their tribulations and triumphs in the great outdoors. Here is the best and worst of any hike: from picnics to puffing and panting, deer-sighting to detours. And it proves, as if proof were needed, what epic things can happen right in your own backyard.

To access the trail: Enter Maury County Park and continue straight on the main park road. Pass the Kids’ Kingdom playground on the right, and continue straight up the hill. Halfway up the hill, there is a trailhead with parking on the right.

The Storybook Trail features storybooks presented on child-height panels, along a short accessible trail to promote adult-child interaction around books and nature in a healthy, outdoor activity. Books are rotated monthly, so there is always a new, seasonal story to enjoy. Maury County Park is located at 1018 Maury County Park Dr, Columbia.
