Spooky Tales on the Trails Through Great Parks

Go on a wide-eyed evening hike with the fam on the next couple of Friday nights.

Hit the Great Parks trails in the coming weeks to enjoy spooky fun! Taking place Fridays in October, explore your favorite park after dark during family friendly night hikes where you’ll learn about local lore and things that go bump in the night. All programs are recommended for ages 6 and older; be sure to dress for the weather and wear closed-toe shoes. Cost is $5/person per hike.

Here’s what’s coming up:

“Spooky Tales on the Trails: Cosmic Curiosities”
Mitchell Memorial Forest
5401 Zion Road, Cleves, OH 45002

Hikers at the Wood Duck Trail will imagine walking through a wormhole as they pull back the curtain of our expansive universe. Through the instruction of a Great Parks interpreter, they will travel light years away and interact with some of astronomy’s most infamous cosmic characters in the sky on this family-friendly adventure.

Friday, Oct. 27 at 7, 7:30 and 8 p.m.
