Event details

What’s more fun in the winter than a hike, a campfire and your favorite comfort food? Lace up your hiking boots and grab your favorite mug and a can of chili or soup (non-cream soups only). We will have two pots on the fire — one for chili and the other for soup. Add your contribution to the community pot. We’ll let it simmer over an open flame while we set out for the famous big bridge! Once back, we will enjoy a hot mug of chili or soup warmed over the open fire.
