Metro Parks Winter Hike Ticket to Travel continues in February. Be sure to check out all of the beautiful scenery as the snow falls in  Metro Parks. 

In February, we invite everyone to share their love of Metro Parks. What is your favorite trail? Why do you love the parks? Staff will be highlighting their favorite places in the Metro Parks and telling everyone why Metro Parks are so special.

To show our appreciation to our visitors we are giving away wooden tags. Each week, we will hide 15 logo tags along the winter hike trails. Feel free to snap a picture when you find the ornament or take one home with you. Please remember to share and only take one per family.

Be sure to get your Ticket to Travel book stamped as you continue the Winter Hike series.

  1. I’ve been having a hard time finding someone to stamp my book. So have just been writing dates on the parks that i visit, can i turn in my book for a patch without the stamps?

    1. Hi, Susan. You can sign the book yourself and do not need a staff member to sign it. You can also call the posted ranger cell phone number at each park. Thanks.

  2. We have visited several metro parks (every Sunday morning)… however we never see a ranger to stamp our ticket book. A ranger at Sharon Wood initialed the other parks we visited (we make sure to take a selfie with the Metro park sign) the other park ranger was at Inniswoods. He told us there is always a cell phone number posted at the ranger station, and to call it and the Ranger would meet us. We have called several, but no one ever answers. Any suggestions?
