Shawnee National Forest Guided Hiking FAQ

Where can we hike at?

The hiking trail is up to you. We are only currently permitted to hike within the Shawnee Nation Forest meaning that state parks or state-managed public land is not available for guided hiking experiences at this time. We’re working on this permit process. Hiking experiences must be on designated trails. Hiking experiences are for day hiking only. Please note that the cost is per person for up to 8 miles. After the 8th mile, an additional cost per person is applied.

What days are available to book a guided hike?

At this time, we only provided guided hikes on Saturdays and Sundays each month. If a Saturday or Sunday falls on the last day of the month, we are unable to provided services on that day.

What do I need to bring with me?

Wear comfortable clothing for the weather conditions. Wear comfortable outdoor shoes or boots. Bring a rain jacket if it rains. We will guide in rain and snow if you desire. We will cancel hikes during severe weather giving you a full refund or rescheduling the hike if you desire. Bring at least 1-liter of water, snacks and a lunch that doesn’t require refrigeration or cooking. Bring a day hiking backpack if you have one. Bring any medication you require with you.

If you feel the guided hiking experience was to your desires, you may tip your guide. Tipping is never a requirement or expected but we do welcome it. Guides keep all tip money.

Can I still hike with a medixal condition?

Yes! We will do what we can to cater to your needs. However, we cannot provide medical personnel or equipment.
