Pirate Ridge Trail Hike


11/17/2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Pirate Ridge Trail is part of Sodalis Nature Preserve, but often unnoticed by anyone walking on the paved trail.

The Pirate Ridge Trail Hike will be 1 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 17 at  Sodalis Nature Preserve. Participants will explore the Pirate Ridge Trail while observing seasonal changes. The trail is rustic so the 3-mile hike will be on rugged terrain and will take about 2 hours.

Participants will start at the parking lot.

Gale Rublee, Hannibal Parks & Recreation interpreter guide, said the hike will be a good opportunity for anyone reluctant to try to trail alone.  Rublee has more than 25 years of experience as a nature educator. She is a founding member of the Mississippi Hills Master Naturalists chapter in Hannibal and is coordinator and teacher for the Bluff City Theater Youth Education in Theater Initiative.

Pirate Ridge Trail was named by the Missouri Science class at Hannibal High School and is maintained by the Hannibal Parks & Recreation Department.

The hike is free but reservations must be made by calling Hannibal Parks & Recreation at 221-0154 or emailing mlrichards@hannibal-mo.gov.

Scavenger Hunts

The Hannibal Parks & Recreation Department has developed Scavenger Hunts to encourage visitors to the Hannibal parks. Hannibal children, along with visitors to Hannibal, will have a chance to explore our parks in a different way. These free activities allow participants to learn more about Hannibal Parks and to earn a free treat from a local business in the process!

Here are the scavenger hunts available so far (check back for future additions).
