Kick Off The New Year With A Beautiful Winter Hike At These 8 Ohio State Parks

Now that it’s officially a new year and 2020 is the year you’ve pledge to get outside, get moving and explore your home state more, there’s no better way to embrace the fresh start than with a winter hike. All throughout the Buckeye State, you’ll find several official group hikes that take place in the middle of winter—and they’ll show you a truly beautiful side to winter in Ohio. (For a complete list of this year’s First Day Hikes and Winter Hikes, check out the Ohio State Parks Events Calendar.) The following are 8 of our favorite group treks to take in Ohio State Parks this January. Ready for an adventure?

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
