Hike for the Mic

Celebrate National Take a Hike Day with a scavenger hunt!

On Wednesday, November 17, a microphone will be hidden somewhere in the Jefferson City park trail system – greenway, trail loops, and mountain bike/hiking trails are all fair game.

A clue will be posted here and on the Facebook event at 12:00 pm on November 17.

Here is your OFFICIAL CLUE…what we lovingly call the “Trail Mix” playlist! Each clue on the playlist gets you closer to the mic drop.
1. Willie Nelson “Milk Cow Blues”
Well, I said sail, sail on
I said sail on, pretty gal, sail on
You’re gonna keep right on sailing ’til you lose your happy home
2. Little Big Town “Little White Church”
You can’t ride this gravy train
Anymore, anyway
3. Brett Eldridge “Lose My Mind”
You put me on a roller coaster, fly me on a plane
You send me to another planet, get inside my brain
4. Mel McDaniel “Louisiana Saturday Night”
Waiting in the front yard sitting on a log
A single-shot rifle and a one-eyed dog
As a reminder, the mic can be hidden anywhere in the parks trail system. Use the map links below to help with the clues.

The person who follows the clue to the mic and returns it to The Linc (1299 Lafayette St.) will receive two reserved-seating tickets for the 2022 season at Capital Region MU Healthcare Amphitheater!

But wait, there’s more! If you find the location but no mic, you can still win! Take a selfie with the location marker (probably a flyer or something…we haven’t figured that part out yet) and send it in by noon on Thursday, November 18. One hiker-up will be randomly selected to receive a buy-one-get-one-free gift certificate for the 2022 season at Capital Region MU Healthcare Amphitheater.

With 40 miles of trail, there are plenty of spots to drop the mic. Check out the trails here.
