Save Our Trails: Embrace the Mud (Hike)

March 26 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

$10.00 - $12.00

It has been said that our national parks are “America’s best idea,” and we could not agree more! Cuyahoga Valley National Park welcomed more than 2.8 million visitors in 2020 and is the 7th most visited national park in the United States.

However, not everyone has been impressed. In fact, one visitor was so turned off that they left a one-star review stating that CVNP was just too muddy! And you know what? We’re going to embrace that!

Join Conservancy staff as we highlight the mental and physical health benefits of getting a little muddy and being in nature. We’ll go over proper gear for Ohio’s muddiest hiking season and the importance of staying on the trails during this time.

So, grab your boots and a buddy that wants to get muddy!

Drinks and cookies will be provided, and a small goodie bag of “mud-themed” items will be given out at the end of our adventure.

Conservancy Members: $10 | Non-Members $12

Trail Details & Difficulty

Although this trail is family-friendly, we do not suggest children under the age of 12 attend due to the length of the hike and muddy terrain. Your ticket purchase will directly support Conservancy programs & initiatives, and Cuyahoga Valley National Park!

This event will take place in the southern area of the park. Directions and exact location will be emailed to you after registering. Our guided, almost 3-mile hike will be on a well-established NPS trail with muddy terrain and moderate inclines. This trail is unpaved and is not wheelchair accessible.

COVID Safety Guidelines

Per federal COVID guidelines, all individuals (regardless of vaccination status) must wear face coverings in federal buildings and whenever physical distancing cannot be maintained outside. Please be sure to bring a mask and be prepared to wear it. We will provide face coverings and hand sanitizer to those that need it. Conservancy staff will continue to wear face coverings for the safety of our participants.

Refunds will be offered in the case of cancellations due to COVID concerns.
