Go Take A Hike
Sunday, Sept. 11, is the official Kickoff date for the Go Take A Hike program. There are 11 planned hikes in the Erie Metro Parks between Sunday and Dec. 11. Hikers who complete 8 of 11 hikes will earn an Arkansas walking stick or a leather medallion to attach to their walking sticks that were earned in prior years. Bring your dog along and they can earn a MetroPark bandana or a medallion.
This Sunday’s event will be from 2:59 to 5 p.m. in Milan. You will have an opportunity to hike the Huron River Greenway on routes varying in length from an easy .8 to 2.2 miles in length.
Additionally, there will be free admission tours offered at the Edison Birthplace and the Milan Historical museums. Musical entertainment will be provided by the Skunk Cabbage Band and there will be complimentary refreshments and activities geared toward children.
It’s a great way to make new friends and get a little exercise too.
