Hey ladies!! May can be a busy month, join us for a mid-week stroll through the woods and wetlands of Glacier Ridge! Fingers crossed the prairie will have some beautiful spring flowers for us! The goal is to reach the observation tower just before sunset! These trails are paved/boardwalk, so this is a GREEN hike! Dogs are welcome to join! Please meet at the parking lot CLOSEST to the dog park. 

This hike is open to all skill levels, and as always, our meetups 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 dinner or a snack first, and hydrate! Wear comfortable clothing, tennis shoes or hiking shoes, at least 2L of water, and a first aid kit! Remember to bring a jacket, it may be chilly once the sun goes down. Headlamps/Flashlights are encouraged!

Please remember to dress appropriately! It’s spring in Ohio, so prepare for all four seasons at once! Layers are the best way to dress so you don't overheat! Check out this great blog post from REI about dressing for colder weather! https://www.rei.com/learn/expert-advice/layering-basics.html

***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***
