Hiking Series in Northeastern Ohio
Join our fall hiking series! Appalachian Outfitters is hosting a series of group hikes in September and October, on Sundays (9am) and Wednesdays (6pm). Enjoy the beautiful, natural outdoor scenery and pleasant company while you catch up with old friends and meet new ones!
As an added bonus, when you join our hike, you have the chance to win prizes from some of the best manufacturers of outdoor gear, like the Black Diamond Cosmos head lamp. For every hike to attend, your name will be entered into our raffle system, increasing your chances of winning excellent gear for free.
To support the outdoors in our local community, we will have a donation bucket dedicated to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park at each hike. All donations will be used for park improvements. We recommend (but don’t require) $1 for each hike, for each person. Because we value our parks and our communities, Appalachian Outfitters will meet up to $1,000 for donations.
