Kentucky - Abandoned Rose Island Amusement Park

This event is hosted by Girls Who Hike Ambassador Whitney Barter (cell # (502) 718-4190)! All attendees will receive special Girls Who Hike giveaways before the hike starts.

Join us to hike trail #3 & #7 at Charlestown State Park to explore the abandoned Rose Island Amusement Park. 

If you have ever not come to an event because you were worried about being the slowest in the group, please JOIN us on this hike. The elevation change is mostly at the beginning of the hike and will be done at your own pace as we will be regrouping at the amusement park. You can also cut the hike in half, if you would prefer to do 2 miles, instead of 4 miles. Come join me at the back of the pack!

KIDS and DOGS are welcome to join us girls on this hike, but please leave the guys at home. 

I will update you with more information leading up to the hike via this Facebook Event, so keep an eye out for posts! If you have any questions/concerns please reach out to me directly or comment below. Hope to see you on the hike!
