Walking Thru Autumn – Hike 1 of 8
September 10 @ 5:00 am - 7:00 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 16th annual Walking Thru Autumn hiking series. Each week 60-90 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 2022 Metro Parks hiking stick medallion. Hand-made wood hiking sticks are available for $10, and specially designed Park District t-shirts will be available online during the first few weeks of the program. All participants are required to pre-register at www.jampd.com or by calling 419-221-1232.
All hikes start at 9:00 am, last approximately 1.5 hours and will be on easy to moderate terrain. September 10th marks the first hike; however, participants may register as late as September 23rd 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!
