Join the Hickory Legacy Foundation in a celebration and fundraiser supporting summer youth programs and the return of youth skiing to Hickory for the 2023/24 season! The Hickory Hike 4 Kids event will be an all-day affair with a community hike up our recently renovated trails, an outdoor BBQ featuring music, local beer and wine, delicious food, family games, and two live bands!
At 11:00 am, three hiking options will be available: the summit hike, which is the most challenging; the mid-station hike, which is moderate; and the base hike, which is mostly flat ground and the easiest of the three.
The Hickory Legacy Foundation is committed to promoting healthy lifestyles, educational and recreational opportunities, and environmental sustainability in the region, specifically the 3 Sisters Range. Proceeds from the fundraiser will support ongoing operational costs, the Hickory EcoLearn summer program, and youth ski programs!
Hiking/Bands, Brews & BBQ Tickets - Only $10.00!
This ticket gets you full access to the venue for the day, including Hiking and admission to Bands, Brews & Barbecue.
Pre-registration for hikers is now closed (in order to get the final t-shirt count), but if you would still like to join the hike, this ticket will give you access but does not include a t-shirt. A limited number of event t-shirts and other cool Hickory merch will be available for sale.
If you intend on hiking, please arrive by 10:45 am. The hikes will begin promptly at 11:00 am.
Adult tickets are $10.00 each online or $15 the day of the event. Kids under 12 are FREE! Great food and drinks will be available for purchase.
We will be serving our standard BBQ fare featuring Oscar’s meats, local microbrews, and local wines. Registering as a hiker gives you access to Bands, Brews, and BBQ. Non-hikers may purchase tickets online for $10 or $15 at the gate on the day of the event. Kids 12 and under are free. Support your community ski and recreation center and the Hickory Legacy Foundation, and have a fun afternoon and evening at the same time!
