This is a GREAT HIKE, as we will hit all the hills Sugarcreek has to offer! Even a few on the Horse Trail, providing there are no horse trailers in the lot. We will eave our way around the park on the Green, Blue, Big Woods, Equine, Orange, and Red trails and maybe a few unmarked trails as well. This is a moderate pace but not a stroll in the park! There are a couple of creek crossings, which are usually easy rock-hops, depending on the water level. Come join us for a great hike and an even better workout!
Sugarcreek MetroPark is a very diverse area with all stages of succession, mature forests, a trio of 500-year old white oaks, varied topography, a planted prairie, meadows, and scenic Sugar Creek. The planted prairie provides a diverse mix of native prairie and old-field species but requires yearly burning or mowing due to the abundance of brambles and small trees. Visitors also will find a large meadow and two pastures.
