Hike & Seek: Kindness Rock @ Locust Grove Nature Center

We’re hiding hand-painted “kindness rocks” around the park for you to find. Kindness rocks are little hidden treasures intended to inspire people and bring them joy. They are fun to find and even more fun to paint and hide for others!

Check-in at the front desk any time between 2pm and 5pm for a few hints, and receive all the supplies you need to paint and hide your own rocks. Then take a hike on one of our beautiful trails to play a game of rock hide and seek.

Natural surface trails are not stroller accessible. Severe weather cancels the program. $2 per person. Please register adults and children over the age of 2.
