Leisure Brecksville Hike - 3x3 3+ Mi. x 3MPH

We will leave promptly at 6:15 PM.  We will begin our hike in/around the nature center - if there is a full moon, and end on the APT - All Purpose Trail.  Flashlights will be needed as the Winter season progresses.  Dress appropriately as there may be Black Ice on the APT. As always - hike at your own risk.

Join us for a relaxed pace 3 to 4 mile hike by the Brecksville Nature Center/Harriet Keeler Memorial Picnic Pavilion. We will meet in the parking lot Tuesday evening.  Our round trip will be from the Nature Center Wildflower Overlook area down towards Station Road Bridge. 

Rating:      Moderate-Intermediate due to hills, wintery conditions and uneven terrain.

Distance:   3 Miles, Optional mile(s) add-on, for those wanting to increase endurance

Speed:      3 mph, 20 minutes per mile.

Dogs:        Leashed dogs are welcome - please keep them away from legs of other hikers.

This is a hike.  If you care for only a walk/stroll in the park, we assume the you will want to stay around the Nature Center as the trees and birds are amazing at this time of the year.  You are welcomed to begin with us. Please bring water.

Directions: From I-77 take Exit 149 (SR 82); east on SR 82 past Brecksville Rd. (SR 21) in Brecksville; right on Chippewa Creek Dr. at park entrance; continue past Meadows Dr. to parking area for Brecksville Nature Center, on right. 

8:00 PM, Creekside Restaurant (Tuesday is discount wine night!).  This group does NOT have reservations.  Please respect the 6:30 group's standing-reservation & table - as they call in each week with a count of expected attendees.  We usually sit in the rear-right of the bar area - and (if crowded) Creekside will put us in the party room if the bar area is full.  Creekside:  8803 Brecksville Road (Route 21), Brecksville, OH 44141; (440)[masked];
