Fall is finally here, and there are some excellent hikes coming up at the Columbus Metro Parks. Fall is a great time to visit the parks and watch the leaves changing and you’ll be likely to see more wildlife now that it isn’t as hot outside. The Metro Parks are one of the great overlooked resources in our city – and nearly every program is free!
To find the upcoming Metro Park hikes, check out the Program page. You can narrow you search by date, park, or activity (select Hikes)…or check out all of the upcoming programs at the Metro Parks. You’ll find full-moon hikes, fall fest pumpkin hike, hikes geared towards families, older adults, dogs and owners, as well as for those who are in shape and ready to walk quickly. Some hikes are wheelchair-friendly and on paved paths, while others are off-path, so be sure to read the descriptions so that you know what to expect.
The hikes and FUN are free, and registration isn’t required!
