Get Back on the Trail

When: Tue., May 24 2011

Late spring's long stretches of daylight mean there's no excuse to sit at home when you could be out taking a walk. Making it even easier to burn off the midday pastrami, two area park systems have come together to offer Spree for All, an easy-going hiking opp for people of all ages and abilities. Taking place now through June 30, Spree for All focuses on easy-to-navigate trails in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and the Metroparks Serving Summit County. To receive hiking rewards, complete five hikes on five different trails, the same trail, or any combination thereof. (A complete list of Spree for All trails and mileages can be found at Then turn in a completed hiking form (also available on the website) and gather up your lanyard and commemorative pin. The hiking is free for all; non-Summit County residents pay a small fee for the rewards. Additional information can be found at the Visitors Center at Akron's F. A. Seiberling Nature Realm (1828 Smith Rd.) or by calling 330-865-8065. — Cicora
