Just because summer is winding down doesn’t mean that you can’t still get out and enjoy the outdoors. Which is why the Shaker Lakes Hike, Run & Explore is the perfect event to transition to fall.
Taking place on Sunday, September 17 at the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes, Hike, Run & Explore allows your whole family to do just that. There are guided nature hikes, with everything from a 12-mile round trip hike to Gordon Park along Lake Erie to a 1-mile family and pet-friendly hike along the Nature Center trails. The hikes are $20 for adults and $10 for children ages 4-12.
There are also a 5K and 10K races. You can take advantage of $20 early bird registration until September 4.
Once you get your workout in, stay for the beer garden, food trucks, archery, tree climbing, music, and crafts in the Shaker Parklands. There’s truly something for all ages and interests to enjoy!
The Nature Center at Shaker Lakes serves 13,000 children each year through school based programs, which include the Applied Science for Kids (ASK!) program with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, and other districts such as Cleveland Heights-University Heights, Shaker Heights and various Head Start programs. The annual Shaker Lakes Hike, Run & Explore benefits those environmental education programs.
