Families can enjoy the fall colors in Jefferson Memorial Forest at the Mayor’s Healthy Hometown Hike and Outdoor Adventure Sat., Oct. 19, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Participants can get a pumpkin, take a hay ride, and hike trails of various lengths through the Forest at the height of fall color. The ninth annual hike is part of the Mayor’s Healthy Hometown Movement, encouraging better health and wellness by highlighting opportunities for increased physical activity.
The event is free to the public and the first 500 participants receive a T-shirt. Mayor Greg Fischer will kick off the event before the hiking and other activities.
Activities include a children’s nature exploration area, Alpine Tower climbs, pumpkin decorating for the kids, hayrides, archery, and canoe and kayaking demonstrations. The Forest’s volunteer trail team and staff will lead hikes at various skill levels and introduce visitors to the native plant gardens, bird blind and animal exhibits.
