Happy Hikers Club is a free and inclusive monthly social/recreational club of Columbus and Franklin County Metro Parks & the YMCA of Central Ohio (ECRN+). This event believes that ALL children should have access to the outdoors in order to play and build lasting friendships, participate in positive physical activity, and experience the sensory wonders of nature. On the first Saturday of each month a Metro Parks Naturalist will lead families on a walk or roll to explore a new Metro Park trail. Families can build their circles of support and connect with one another through nature, in a friendly, safe, and welcoming environment.
