This will be an approx 6 mile hike, with a lunch break in the middle! This hike is open to all skill levels, and as always, our meet ups are a no-judgement zone. We are here to encourage as well as motivate each other along the trail. This means NO ONE is left behind! 

>>>>>Preparing for the hike: make sure to eat breakfast and hydrate, wear comfortable clothing, supportive tennis shoes or hiking boots with good tread, trekking poles as needed, bug spray, at least 2-3L of water, lunch, and a first aid kit! Also, this is fall in Ohio, so check your weather before you head out, and I would recommend a rain jacket or gloves/hat on standby! 

***As with all GWH events, you must sign the GWH waiver before attending – it takes less than a minute to sign, and once you’ve signed it once you’re good to go for all future meetups***
