2014 Trail Tour - Swan Creek

2014 is the year we walk all the trails in the Toledo MetroPark System. I will post multiple walks so everyone gets a chance to do this if they want.

Get your official 2014 Trail Tour Apparel here:

Swan Creek

Brown - All Purpose - 3.3 mile loop
Red - Connector - 0.7 mile (one way)
Orange - Meadow Trail - 1.3 mile from Airport
Yellow - Big Woods - 0.8 miles from Glendale

We will do about 4 miles - give or take depending on trail conditions. I want to start with the Brown trail and add something depending on the day.

>> 
If you do the Facebook thing, I created an open group to help share photos/maps/etc.  I will be posting everything here as well - but a backup is always good.

I have created an online folder with spreadsheet and checklist for trails walked. http://goo.gl/uHDFo7­

  • Kandis

    I will try to make it. Probably bringing my dogs if I do come...

    1 · March 24, 2014

  • Ken M.

    I am thinking the 3.3 mile multi-purpose trail (brown) there is a loop, and a bridge. I'm going to head out later this week to scout it out.

    March 24, 2014

    • Amy

      Some of the paths - blue, yellow, are still kind of bad. The swing bridge has been closed off and on depending on rain. Brown path is 100% OK.

      1 · March 24, 2014

  • Ken M.

    Forecast for 50ish degree temps and sun.

    1 · March 24, 2014

  • Kandy

    If we are doing a cookout afterwards, I will bring some sort of dessert!!

    1 · March 24, 2014

  • Dave S.

    Ready to get outside!

    1 · March 23, 2014

  • Kandis

    Would I be able to bring my two dogs (they're big)?

    1 · March 16, 2014

    • Ken M.

      always pet friendly

      March 16, 2014

  • Amy

    Hey! Rumor has it Stuart B might offer up his HOUSE for a party afterward if it's too cold for my garage...Just joking...kind of...

    2 · March 11, 2014

  • Dennis W. C.

    Ok thankyou !

    March 8, 2014

  • Dennis W. C.

    Just checking... Is the Swan Creek hike on Saturday March 29, or Sunday March 30, at 11:30am ???

    March 8, 2014

    • Ken M.

      Sunday. I originally had Saturday but saw that the Chili cook off was going on Sat.

      March 8, 2014

    • Ken M.

      So I moved the hike to Sunday. I'm going to try and alternate sat/sun for April.

      March 8, 2014

  • Amy

    Maybe a drinkie-pooh or something post-walkie-pooh? Me fears too cold for garage party but we'll see closer to the date...
