2019 Annual Cherry Pie Hike - read about it here
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. Hikers met re-enactors portraying Washington and his guide Christopher Gist, as well as Native Americans the two encountered. Echoing through woods that morning was the reenactment of the gunshot that could have ended Washington's life when he was just 21. Cherry Pie was served to honor Washington’s birthday.
The annual commemoration is sponsored by the Butler Chapter of the North Country Trail Association, Washington’s Trail 1753, Historic Harmony, Butler County Tourism and Convention Bureau, and Jennings Environmental Education Center.
