Metroparks After Dark

Do early sunset times have you lamenting the loss of your after-work walk in the park? Enjoy an invigorating evening hike through your parks at a time when the parks are usually closed.

No registration required; just show up! Hiking buddies are strongly encouraged so bring a friend!

Headlamps or flashlights are encouraged for reading trail signs, but may not be needed while hiking. When using headlamps please follow proper headlamp etiquette and point your light downward around others to avoid blinding your fellow hikers.

All hikers must follow social distancing guidelines. Sturdy hiking shoes are recommended, dress for the weather.

This area will be open regardless of the weather
