Bundle up and put on your hiking boots – it’s time for Metro Parks annual winter hikes! This year, the winter hike series takes on a new look as your ticket to travel through 18 different parks and hike miles and miles of trails. Starting in December, visitors can hike in six different parks per month and have their ticket to travel booklet stamped.
Choose any trail for any distance and hike any day of the week. No more fighting for a parking spot on Saturday! After the hike, ask a staff member to stamp the travel ticket. Some things on the trip remain the same. After seven hikes, visitors can return their completed travel ticket to receive a unique 2020/2021 Winter Hike patch. Friends of Metro Parks will also have hiking sticks and medallions available.
Each month will feature a different theme to keep everyone inspired to get out and hike. In December, twinkling lights will illuminate the way along park pathways. Work up a sweat in January while hiking strenuous trails. Visitors can share their love of Metro Parks in the final six parks in the winter hike series.
Follow park’s Facebook pages to help plan your travel adventures and look for our #cbusparkie rotating selfie station at parks. Tag us using #cbusparkie so we can see your Metro Parks selfies.
Pick up your Ticket to Travel booklet at a featured park beginning December 1 or download the travel guide from our website. The parks are beautiful with a dusting of snow or bright sunny skies. Be sure to get out and travel in Metro Parks this winter!
