End-of-the-World Solstice Hike and Campfire

  • South Chagrin Reservation, Shelterhouse Picnic Area

    Intersection of Hawthorne Parkway and Sulphur Springs Drive, Bentleyville, OH (map)

    41.416360 -81.421680

  • Follow the park signs to Shelterhouse Picnic Area
  • Come celebrate the winter solstice and the end of the world with a night hike and campfire at South Chagrin Reservation.  What could possibly be better on earth's final day than wandering around the woods in the dark with your Meetup peeps?!?!


    We'll hike about 60-90 minutes through the northern section of the park.  Afterwards we'll build a campfire to keep us warm on this longest night of the year.  Does anyone want to bring the smores??  I'll bring some cookies.

    Please dress for the weather and bring a headlamp or flashlight as well as a camp chair.  There is no other seating around the campfire circle.

    Cancelled due to the weather.  Look for this to be re-scheduled next week as a full moon hike.

      I'm watching the weather and will wait to see how it looks on friday morning. If it's too dangerous to be out on the roads I'll probably postpone.

    The only thing I care about is to go out with a roasted hotdog.

    This is my first hike with you Northeast Ohio Adventurers. Meeting some friends there. Not sure if the woods would be my first choice should the end of the world come :-) Will bring marshmallows anyway.

    Will we need firewood? If so, I will bring a bit. Also, I don't do smores but will bring a light appetizer.

      Thanks Betsy! I requested firewood from the park when I applied for the permit, so they should have a pile waiting for us :)

      If it is the end of the world and it goes up in flames firewood will not be needed.
