Cincinnati Hikes is partnering with No Strings Travel for a virtual hike to raise money for our sister city of Kharkiv in Ukraine. It is 5304 miles to our sister city so we're hiking 5304 steps (2.5 miles) to show our support! We want to raise $5304 to go to grassroots efforts to help the war struck city with funds for medicine and food delivered daily to the warzone where many poor, sick, and elderly are still stuck.

 

For this challenge you can register online or in person at Roads, Rivers, and Trails in Milford. You'll receive your exclusive Cincy Hikes Ukraine Sticker beforehand and together for 513 weekend, we're going to hike as a city in support of our sister city.

 

You can hike one of the scheduled hikes around the city all weekend or hike solo and post the picture of your hike and your sticker to Cincinnati Hikes with #5304. Registration to participate add get your sticker a donation of $25 and all the money goes directly to folks on the ground aiding in Ukraine.

 

You can find out more about the amazing woman behind the grassroots efforts, Olga Fedchenko, register, and purchase your sticker on the No Strings Travel website! You can click this button here!

Monthly Missions 2022

Wanting to add some different types of outdoor experiences to your life in 2022? We are too so let’s do it together with our Monthly Missions Challenge! 

 

Each month will feature an activity to try and, if that particular activity isn’t your jam, you can participate in a volunteer opportunity or choose your own adventure instead. You can truly make this what you want! Our desire for you is that you meet new people, learn something new, or stretch outside your comfort zone just a bit to experience even more of Cincinnati’s outdoor goodness. 

 

January: Let’s go winter hiking!

February: Invite someone on a hike with you

March: Upgrade or add at least one item to your hiking gear. New boots? New socks? A rain jacket? Hiking poles? Headlamp? Treat yo self!

April: Hike in the rain

May: Find and attend a class to expand on your knowledge of spending time outdoors (orienteering, backpacking, winter hiking)

June: Attend Trail Fest with us

July: Hike along a river

August: Bring dinner outdoors

September: Camp somewhere (your backyard counts!)

October: Take a selfie while on one of your hikes when you come across something that just makes you smile. Hopefully the photo continues to bring a smile to your face as you come across it in the years ahead. 

November: Use the Resource Center to Research and visit one of our local preserves, parks, or organizations to learn about how it came to be and what they have going on now.

December: Donate food, clothing, or a gift to a local charity
