During the winter months, the Metro Parks feature a Winter Hike Series in twelve of the parks in Columbus and Franklin County.

This winter hike offered hikers the choice of a 1, 3, or 5-mile self-guided trek throughout the park.

Although the sky was gray and cloudy, the 30°F temperatures and the winter beauty made it perfect to enjoy the great outdoors!

Walking through the winter wonderland, capturing wintery scenes with my camera and breathing the fresh air, it was a great day to be outside!

After completing the hike, visitors were served refreshments such as hot chocolate, hot soup, cookies, and water at the picnic shelter.

I encourage you to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors, even if there is snow on the ground and cold temperatures.

Just bundle up and wear warm, water-proof boots and you will feel energized and connected with nature!
