Thanksgiving Morning Hike

  • Nov 22, 2012 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

For those who will not be celebrating a traditional Thanksgiving today, and/or those who would like to begin the day with a healthy workout...

Here is a chance to enjoy a cool fall morning with a hike!

Take Sunset Lane off of S.O.M. Center Rd. (rt. 91). At the end of Sunset, turn right onto Buttermilk Parkway. After driving over the bridge and passing Ox Lane and a large pavilion, you will reach the end of the road; park in the large parking lot on your left.

We will explore the A.B. Williams Memorial Woods of North Chagrin Reservation, beginning at the Forest Trail Head, and hike the bridle trail down to Wilson Mills trailhead and back up by Foster's Run. This will involve a couple of fairly steep hills--up and down--and a visit to a very old oak tree, a favorite of mine.

    Thanks for putting it together. I split off so the dogs could run off leash for a bit. Didn't get too lost!

    If I may ask, how many miles and what is the estimated time to complete the hike?

    November 13, 2012

    • Lynda

      Michael, I estimate it to be approximately 4.5 miles; we should return to the parking lot by 11:30ish. After that, we'll decide if that was enough ;-)

    Would this be a dog friendly hike?

    November 21, 2012

    • Lynda

      Sure - as long as your dog is leashed, you are welcome to bring him/her.
