Evening Hike at the Lagoons

Let's take a leisurely 3-mile hike through Mentor's nature preserve and marina.            Meet by the kiosk pictured here.

The trails we will be walking provide three distinctly different vistas:  Mentor Marsh, upland forest and Lake Erie shoreline.  We will also get a view of the Mentor Lagoons Marina.

 The terrain will be varied: some hard packed dirt/gravel, some just dirt, and some sand. No hills (other than the descent to get to the beach!). We can watch the sun from the beach as it is going down, but must end our time there before the park closes at dusk, which will be about 8:00.

    Spectacular walk along lagoons and an Erie lake. Nice to have shared it with a good crowd.

      We could have renamed it Lake Eerie that night!

    The many different types of habitat and the dramatic sky and wind made for a very exciting time - especially out by the lake! Thanks to Lise for showing us the best route, hidden trails, and the mysterious grave. What fun!

    Sorry I didn't get to talk much to some of you; it was good seeing you all.

    Absolutely gorgeous, from the big waves at the beach to the tricks of the light that made the trees look like they were either on fire or already changed color, to the sunset. It was a nature lovers hike for sure, finding the grave site was a cool add on as well.

    Lady Luck was with us on this Friday the 13th! Thanks Lynda and Lise for leading me through these trails right in my backyard, figuratively speaking. Great participation and wonderful meeting new folks.

    Sorry I have to cancel. I was really looking forward to it, but my dog has been sick that last few days. I doubt he will be up for a 3 mile hike.

      Sorry about that, Heidi! Hope he gets better.

      Sure! I believe there will be 3 other dogs hiking with us (bring a leash).
