Walking Thru Autumn – 2021 Hiking Series – 5 of 8
October 9, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
There is nothing quite like a brisk walk and a breath of fresh air on a crisp autumn morning! Please join us for our 15th annual Walking Thru Autumn hiking series. Each week 50-80 participants gather for a guided hike, to take in the beauty of fall and explore some of the 30+ miles of Metro Park trails. Upon completing 6 out of the 8 offered hikes, participants will receive a 2021 Metro Parks hiking stick medallion. Hand-made wood hiking sticks and specially designed t-shirts will be available for purchase for $10. All participants are required to pre-register online at www.jampd.com or by calling 419-221-1232.
All hikes start at 9:00 a.m., last approximately 1.5 hours and will be on easy to moderate terrain. September 11th marks the first hike; however, participants may register as late as September 25th for the final 6 hikes. Registrations after this date are welcome and encouraged but will not be eligible for the hiking stick medallion.
Come enjoy the amazing beauty of fall in your Johnny Appleseed Parks!
