Passport Hike - Sugar Cookies at Sugarcreek
Time to hike with Mountain Laurel on the green and big woods trails at this park and earn a sticker for your passport. We will cover about 4 miles of trail at a slow pace of 2 to 2.5 mph. Bring your hiking poles, some water and dress for the weather. After the hike you will receive your sticker and a sugar cookie for your efforts. Description of the park: The 618-acre Sugarcreek MetroPark is filled with a diverse habitat of scenic creeks, rolling hills, dense woods, wildflowers, fields, prairies and wetlands, all conveniently located just south of Centerville/Kettering. Oak trees estimated to be 550 years old, a tallgrass prairie, woodlands and the scenic Sugar Creek beckon visitors.
