I got mine, I've been doing it for many years. Started in 1984 and haven't missed a year yet.
I love the all the parks have to offer.

So how many earned their badge? Was happy to be a first year hiker and earn my staff!

Wow! We are all on such different schedules! I'm going to start a new thread for the Fall Hiking Spree - I'M HIKING ~ JOIN ME!
Please give details of your planned hike - when (day and start time), where (which trail), and where you will meet (such as at the shelter, by the sign, etc.). You might also want to say if you'll have your kids or dog with you (someone got mad at me last year because I brought Peaches).
Try to post a day or so ahead if possible; if not, just post and hopefully someone will see it and join you.
Sheila

I'm planning on this too. I missed the Spring Spree by a hike. I have Wednesdays and weekends and occasional evenings if I don't have work from my 2nd job. Here's hoping I can meet more people!!

I am planning on doing these hikes as a first-time hiker along with my 9 1/2 year old daughter. We are available Monday & Tuesday evenings after 6:30 pm and on weekends. Would definitely love to hike trails with others.

I did my first hike today. I just realized how hard it is to coordinate schedules. I usually get up, look at the weather, and hike right away before I get sidetracked. So it may not work for me to do a group hike. But if you can, go for it!

I'll hike with people. I'm going to have to go for evenings if they're not too far and weekends. I'm also willing to just post my plans. If I'm going by myself, I usually take my dog.

I'm interested in hiking with other Sparkers. However, my available times are usually weekdays.

The metro-parks Fall Hiking Spree began September 1 and runs through November 30. You must hike at least eight of the 15 designated trails listed on the form. Six of the trails are level 1 (easiest), five are level 2, and three are level 3 (the 15th trail is a metro trail of the hiker's choice)
Here is a link to more information about the Fall Hiking Spree:

I know several members hiked the trails together last year. Is anyone interested in doing that again this year? I know schedules are hard to coordinate but maybe we could set up a time and those who could make it could get together.

Another option is to just post here a day or two ahead and say something like "I'm walking Redwing Trail at Firestone Thursday morning (with Peaches, my dog). I'll start from the pavilion at 9:30. Join me if you can!" And YES, I am planning that walk so join me if you can. I should warn you - I'm a slow walker but don't mind being left behind. :)
