Pack the parks Saturday, November 17 for National Take a Hike Day. Register for one of the group hikes at the 14 locations listed below.

The Wildwood hike will be in memory of Ranger Doug Carr. As a tribute to Doug, and in recognition of national Diabetes Awareness Month, our partner, Mercy Health, will offer free health screenings before and after the hike.

At Farnsworth, take a hike on the Towpath Trail beside the Maumee River with Metroparks Chief of Operations Joe Fausnaugh.

Stomp through the swamp at Pearson, walk in the footsteps of American soldiers and American Indians at the Fallen Timbers Battlefield or explore one of the newer parks, such as Westwinds or Wiregrass Lake. There are trails to choose from close to home, wherever you reside in Lucas County.
