Annual Cherry Pie Hike
Held annually in late February at Jennings Environmental Education Center, Slippery Rock, visitors can choose from several hikes and walks with circa 1753 re-enactors and State Park staff.. A $2 donation is requested and reservations are required. Cherry Pie is served!!!! Hikers will meet reenactors portraying Washington and his guide Christopher Gist, as well as Native Americans the two encountered. Echoing through woods that morning will be the reenactment of the gunshot that could have ended Washington's life when he was just 21.
