This state park includes hiking and running trails for visitors of all abilities, picturesque picnic grounds, a popular sledding hill, horse back riding, a dog park, rigorous mountain biking trails, plus an interactive nature center and military museum.
Fort Harrison State Park promotes year-round activities for all. For a current listing of the activities, please visit the "Links" page for the Fort Harrison State Park Website and Facebook page.
2017 in Review
The Friends of Fort Harrison worked on many projects during 2017. We provided hot cider for the first day hike, supported the first annual Cowboy Bob dog walk, and the annual Halloween bash. We partnered with Monarch Watch, planting milkweed to support the monarchs, and REI for a public lands day playground rehab project and Christmas gift wrapping. Our maintenance projects included garlic mustard pulls, trail trimming and armoring, bridge building, and garden maintenance. We look forward to many more projects to help support the park in 2018 and are thankful for the many volunteers who help us with our work.
