Winter Hike Series

Hit The Trails!

2023 Winter Hike Series

Welcome back to another un-brrr-lieveably fun year of Great Parks Winter Hike Series! Hit the trails for challenging hikes, ranging in distance from 4–5.5 miles, held at a different park each week to guarantee a new experience. Hikes begin at 10 a.m. and conclude with a hot, hearty bowl of soup and plenty of camaraderie.

Sign up for one, several, or the whole series. Those who complete all five hikes will receive a commemorative 2023 Winter Hike Series button! A hike can be provided on a paved multi-use trail at these parks: Winton Woods, Sharon Woods, Woodland Mound and Miami Whitewater Forest by calling 513-521-7275 by five days prior to the hike.

Registration begins December 1. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. To register for the whole series, sign up for each hike separately. Don’t wait; spots fill up fast!

Great Parks is continuing to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic closely and will make adjustments as necessary, with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Hamilton County Public Health.
