Holiday Lighted Hike

November 19, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The Wapello County Trails Council is hosting their 17th annual Holiday
Lighted Hike on Friday, November 19 from 5:30-8 p.m. in Ottumwa Park. Patrons can
use either the trailhead located behind Quincy Place Mall or in Central Addition Park and
take the underpass to the hike route. The hike will proceed through the Holiday Nights ‘n
Lights display. Cost is $5 per person.

The one-mile hike gives participants an opportunity to get a sneak preview of the
upcoming seasonal light display sponsored by the Greater Ottumwa Partners In Progress
(GOPIP) from a unique perspective—outside a car. This is the only opportunity to see the
lights this way. Hikers must start the hike by 7:30 p.m.

Hikers should dress for the weather, bring a flashlight, and are reminded to walk along
the walk path only. Luminaries will line the trail. Refreshments, including soup, hot
chocolate, and cookies, will be available. All proceeds support trail development in
