WHAT Catawba County Parks 10 Year Anniverary Celebration

WHERE  Bakers Mountain Park - 6680 Bakers Mountain Road Hickory NC 28602 

WHEN October 24, 2009 starting at 3pm


Join in on the last of our three-park celebration commemorating the Catawba County Parks Division 10-year anniversary by coming out to Bakers Mountain Park for an evening of family fun and stargazing!


3pm - History Hike lead by Ranger John Sutton. 

You will learn about both the geological history of the mountain as well as historical information on folks who called the mountain home and used its resources in the earlier part of the last century.

This will be a moderate hike lasting about one and one half hours. Please wear comfortable shoes.


6pm - Ranger John Sutton will then head for the top of the mountain for a Night Hike in the forest.

You will just make it to the observation platform in time to see the sunset and prepare yourself for a breathtaking view of the surrounding valley.

The best part is that the Catawba Valley Astronomy Club will be there with a telescope set up at the top for an even better view of the crisp, October sky!

You will then make our way back down the road in the darkness to listen for owls and look for any critters that may be moving about.

Please wear comfortable shoes and bring a flashlight!


7 pm - Rangers Frank Porch and Tabitha Hope will entertain us with ghost stories around the campfire.

They will spin tales of spooky happenings that are sure to keep you on the edge of your seats and make chills run down your spine while we make s'mores by the fire.

If the tales are too spooky you can head over to the telescopes that will be set up near the office to gaze at the heavens and learn more about the night sky from volunteers from the Catawba Valley Astronomy Club!

Bring a chair and a flashlight.




Contact Ranger John Sutton at  or call 828-324-8461 to register for any of these special events.
