Here's a List of the Best Hikes to Take in Ohio This Winter


Our pals at Trek Ohio reached out recently to let us know they've updated their list of Ohio winter hiking trails, many of which happen to be located in the greater Cleveland area.

They've also included a bunch of helpful information on their website, like the hike intensity level and duration, as well as a handy guide for people new to winter hiking which includes tips such as do wear waterproof boots, do wear gloves, and don't forget your camera.

The husband/wife duo behind Trek Ohio have outlined dozens of hikes — big and small — coming up this month as well as into January and February. Peruse the list (look, here's the link again!) and, in case you need a little extra incentive, give this video of a wintry Old Man's Cave a watch below:
