    Branching off from the outdoor recreation thread. Where are your favorite places to hike?

    Mine is definitely Sand Run Metropark in Akron. It's very hilly and beautiful, with a stream running through the whole park. It's also unique because at one point the stream actually crosses the road instead of going underneath and the cars drive through it.

    My favorite is a place called French Creek by Lorain, Ohio. But now that I live in the Akron area (Kent) I just google"hiking trails" and go to a new one every time.
    I know the pet store I volunteer at has people walk dogs at Sand Run Metropark often but I have yet to go there!

    Cloudland Canyon in Georgia is beautiful. Also, the Smoky Mountains have some great points to venture to.

    Acadia National Park in Maine is my favorite spot.

    White Tank Mountains. There are way more scenic places to hike, but that's my closest option. It's also where I started hiking years ago so it's kind of special.

    Acadia is beautiful, especially Cadillac Mountain. Maine has so many great spots.

    Lots good places to hike in Western Mass. Also, Cadillac Mountain is beautiful and I would love to hike it one day. I've only ever been to the top in a car.

    Yeah, I was going to say the Berkshires in western Massachusetts and Connecticut. I used to have so much fun hiking around there.

    I actually grew up in a town right in the middle of that area, so I went to a lot of places, but it's been so long I can't remember what most of them were called. The one I do remember was Bear Mountain.

    Ooh ok, I think I've been in that area. It looks like its close to Bash Bish Falls which I visit once a year.

    Anyone else in the northeast Ohio area also needs to check out Blue Hen Falls. It's gorgeous.
  14. Hiking in Tahoe is pretty cool

    Lake Tahoe? I did a short one up there a couple years ago and left.

    I'm sure I could spend at least a week up there without getting bored.
  16. Yeah Lake Tahoe. Hopefully I could go up there at least once this summer. Last time I hiked there was last year

    Please be kind. Like actually kind though.

    Lake Tahoe is wonderful! There's so many different trails and summits to walk all around it, you could spend forever trying to experience it all.

    Heading to Maine today. I can't wait to go hiking in Acadia. I hope my gf can handle some of the more intense trails, she seems to be very nervous about it. Oh well, there's so many fantastic options to choose from, I'm sure we'll find a happy medium.
