Join us for a relaxed pace 4 mile Hike by the Brecksville Nature Center/Harriet Keeler Memorial Picnic Pavilion, meeting in the parking lot Tuesday evening. We will probably walk down to Station Road Bridge to see the Eagles & Eagle's nest. Once at the RR Station - walk over the bridge into CVNP - and take a left on the TowPath. We will then walk another 1/3 mile to view the nest (bring binoculars if you wish) . . then coming back - ending our hike on all purpose trail. We will hike rain or shine. Additional event organizers are welcomed to assist with this hike. Hike Rating: Pre-Intermediate due to hills, and uneven terrain.
Distance: 4 Miles, Optional mile add-on, for those wanting to increase Hiking endurance. Those that are doing a leisure stroll/walk will have options to turn around and go back at 1-mile to 2-mile intervals - an event host will not be with those strolling at 2 mph.
Speed: 3 mph, 20 minutes per mile.
Bring binoculars if you'd like to see the Eagles (Mom & Dad) and eaglets. They are on one side of the TowPath - and we are looking across from the other side as not to disturb their natural surroundings.
