Fall is here and it's the perfect time to get out and take in the great outdoors. It's also time for the annual Mayor's Hike and it's happening Saturday, December 5, 2020 beginning at 9 a.m. Mayor Williams hosts the annual hike that treks along the Cedar Creek Waterway in south Abilene.

The three-mile hike kicks off in the 100 block of East South 11th Street, hiking northward towards Stevenson Park before returning to the starting line. The trek is a 3 mile hike.

Hike participation is free, and you're encouraged to bring your leashed dogs on this years hike. Hikers will need to bring their own drinking water and need to wear warm clothing for the hike.
