Nature Programming FAQs

Where is the meetup location?
Participants enrolled in the program will receive an email the week leading up to the event containing meetup details. After the program, you'll receive an evaluation survey from Great Parks of Hamilton County, along with information on upcoming Summit Park hike dates.

How long do the hikes typically last?
The nature hikes usually run for about an hour, with guides covering a minimum of one mile during the hike. 

What type of footwear is recommended?
Our trails at Summit Park feature a blend of gravel, mulch, and grass. It's important to wear sturdy shoes for these mixed terrains, opt for closed-toe shoes with reliable traction, such as hiking shoes for stability and safety.

What should I bring along?
Dress in adaptable clothing to accommodate changing weather conditions, and consider applying insect repellent before setting out. Bringing a small backpack is advised for carrying essentials like water and binoculars. Don't forget to pack a hat and sunglasses for added comfort! If you're joining us for a night hike, you're welcome to bring your own flashlight or headlamp.
