Explorer's Series

Please join us each month as we explore a different park in Geauga County by hike, bike, paddle, or skis. Each experience provides a fun way to get outdoors, meet new people, and learn more about the natural, historic, and cultural beauty of our county. 

The activities are physically easy and typically take about an hour to an hour and a half. Many are led by a park naturalist or other knowledgeable individual who share their insights about the natural and historic aspects of the park.

We start at 10:30am, typically at the park's main parking lot. Any and all are encouraged to attend, including well-behaved four-legged friends (on leash.) 

Activities take place rain, snow, or shine.

Never Miss a Meet Up! Sign up for our mailing list below to get updates and notifications about our upcoming explorations.
