Hike and Haiku

Kartchner Caverns State Park

Saturday, April 27, 2024   10 a.m. to noon

Celebrate Trails Day with us on April 27 from 10-12! Commune with nature and express your connection with the Earth through poetry on our "Hike and Haiku" guided hike. You will hike the Foothills Trail up to the mountain viewpoint and, using the view for inspiration, will compose a haiku. Haiku is a traditional form of Japanese poetry that has 3 lines with 5 syllables in the first, 7 syllables in the second, and 5 syllables in the third. Even if you don't think you're a poet, think again and give it a try!

Unleash your creativity while enjoying the majesty of the Sky Islands at Kartchner Caverns! The park's day-use fee ($7 per vehicle) applies, unless you have a cave tour or camping reservation; there is no additional program fee. Program is weather permitting.
