Empty Nest: Winter in California

An Empty Nester event:

“California dreamin’ on such a winter’s day…”

Enjoy the outdoors with fellow Empty Nesters in California! California Woods that is. You don’t want to miss this majestic winter hike through California Woods Nature Preserve. The sense of satisfaction, peace, and joy that you experience from hiking is almost indescribable. Sure – pictures are great – but hiking with friends is the best way to share the experience together. Put on your hiking shoes and head to California! Beginners to experts are welcome.

 Note: The hike is roughly a 3 mile, moderately trafficked trail with some elevation. The trail can be muddy and rugged at times after rain. There is no cost for parking or admission.

Please register by 2/23.

More about California Woods:

California Woods was named one of “Cincinnati’s Best Hiking Spots” from Wander Cincinnati. Nestled in the southeast pocket of Cincinnati, California Woods is a nature center where you can completely immerse yourself in nature. You only have to walk for a couple minutes on any of these trails to feel like you’ve entered a completely different universe. One of the first things you’ll notice as you begin your hike is the sheer diversity of scenery you’ll come across. The preserve is home to over 50 different species of trees and over 200 species of plants. Lick Run Creek also runs directly through the heart of the woods, which means it’s not uncommon to observe kingfishers, turtles, mallards, beavers, and plenty of fish swimming around.
