    The Deep Forest Experience hikes take place between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from December 5 through February 15, at Rockport State Park.

Those interested in a guided hike are invited to simply show up during the hours mentioned and inquire at the park office. State Parks and interpretive staff lead the hikes through the 670-acre park—a rare, old growth forest of ancient cedar, fir, hemlock and maple teeming with lichen and moss. Some of the Douglas-fir trees are 250 feet tall and more than 300 years old. Following the hikes, visitors can participate in a fun craft activity in the park’s Discovery Center, which also has interactive wildlife displays, books and games. Hikers can wrap up their day in the woods enjoying refreshments around a campfire.
