Sports: Winter Hike Series

By Maija Zummo · January 5th, 2010 · CityBeat Recommends

Every Saturday through Feb. 6, Hamilton County Parks offers up a 4 to 5.5-mile hike along some of the city’s best trails. Fight cabin fever by finding some friends, bundling up and getting your ass out of bed before 10 a.m., which is when the hikes start. As an added bonus and warm reward, a bowl of soup will be served to each hiker at the end of the hike. Hikers will also each receive one free walking stick.

This Saturday, the hike takes place at Winton Woods and the soup of the day is bean soup with cornbread. On Jan. 16, head to Sharon Woods for a hike and chicken noodle soup. On Jan. 23, Miami Whitewater Forest hosts the hike with chili soup and crackers. Then on Jan. 30, hike around Woodland Mound for some chicken wild rice soup. And, last but not least, go to Shawnee Lookout for some exercise and vegetable beef barley soup. $5 per person, per hike. Register for hikes at www.greatparks.org.
