RICHLAND COUNTY, OH — Richland Public Health’s “Winter Hike for Health” on Saturday, February 9, will be in two locations. In addition to the traditional hike at Malabar Farm State Park, Gorman Nature Center in Mansfield is joining in the day’s healthy fun.

Enjoy the winter wonderland with hikes through the woods at either location from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Hikes are self-guided on easy trails so everyone in the family can participate. Adults must accompany children.

Hikes at either Malabar Farm State Park (4050 Bromfield Road) or Gorman Nature Center (2295 Lexington Avenue) generally last 30 minutes to one hour. Dogs are permitted, but must be on a leash.

Hiking is promoted as a healthy form of exercise in Ohio state parks and other scenic and natural outdoor locations. Hikers are encouraged to dress warmly and wear sturdy hiking boots as the trail conditions may be somewhat snowy and icy.

The only reason the Winter Hike for Health would be canceled at either location is if the roads are closed due to weather conditions on the day of the hike. Check in with WMFD or Mix 106.1 for weather reports.

The starting point will be at the Visitor’s Center for both Malabar Farm State Park and Gorman Nature Center. At both locations, maps of the walking trails will be available as well as water and healthy snacks.

This is a free event. For more information about the “Hike for Health” call (419) 774-4761 or see richlandhealth.org
