SLADE, Ky. (AP) -- Natural Bridge State Resort Park is offering a series of guided hikes starting next month.
 
The hikes will be led by a naturalist and will range from four miles to eight miles.
 
The first "trail trek" is March 22, followed by hikes on April 26, June 7, Sept. 27 and Nov. 8. The Kentucky Parks Department says the first four will last about three to five hours, with the final event expected to run five to seven hours.
 
The fee for each trek is $8 per person. The minimum age is 10 years old, and anyone 10 to 17 must be accompanied by an adult. Dress appropriately for the weather and bring plenty of water, snacks and lunch if desired.
 
Preregistration is required by calling (800) 325-1710.
