BILL YECK PARK
Saturday, February 9, 2019
Join us for a Saturday Morning Winter Hike AND stop by the store afterwards for hot chocolate, coffee, or tea. We want to encourage you to get out, AND we want to get outside with you!
We will be hiking on these local hiking trails in our wonderful local parks. These hikes are not guided-trips, so you can hike at your own pace; route range from 1.3 miles to 2.9; and require between 45 and 90 minutes to complete.
Each participant is responsible for all of their own personal needs. Our staff will gladly assist or answer questions. Please dress for the weather, as inclement weather is possible. Some trails may be muddy and slippery.

Afterwards, be sure to stop in at Great Miami Outfitters and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate (coffee or tea) in our “Broken Paddle” community area!

ABOUT BILL YECK PARK:
Part of the Centerville-Washington Park District, Bill Yeck Park is a 194-acre natural area along 1.75 miles of Sugar Creek. The park is treasured by hikers, bird watchers and nature enthusiasts. It harbors many rare species of plant life, providing a home to a variety of animals in every season. Fossils from the Ordovician period can be found in Sugar Creek which flows through the park. The park connects with other parks and wildlife areas creating a large corridor of green space that extends from St. Leonard Center to the Little Miami River. This unbroken wooded area makes the park's wildlife abundant and varied.
