"Winter Blues Stats"

According to Cleveland Clinic, current winter depression facts include the sobering statistic that about 5% of American adults experience serious seasonal depression, while 10%-20% experience a milder version called the “winter blues.”

The groundhog disappointed everyone once again in 2023, but DC Multisport, a local non-profit, is here to help you kick that funk! Make plans to join us for the annual Cabin Fever Hike on Saturday, Feb. 17th at the Ferdinand State Forest.

The Cabin Fever Hike is for any level of hiker with two routes available, led by DC Multisport volunteers. The short hike is approx. 2.6 miles and the long hike is 4.8 miles long. Meet up near the campgrounds where the Fire Tower trail head begins.

Entry is free; however, participants are asked to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the Dubois County Food Bank. Participants can register between 8:30-9:00 am. The hike will begin at 9:00am. After the hike, stick around to enjoy a campfire & hot chocolate.
