My friend Amanda Howard and I guided a group backpacking trip for the Metroparks in late September. It was a great time and everyone was able to learn something new, myself included.

Wildwood Preserve. Upland woods loop trail. Ohio Jan 2019
This was a fun and challenging day trip. Temps in the upper teens and an icy trail made for an interesting 2.5 miles. Our time was limited today so just the one loop but there are many others to make this a nice Park to get away for a day in the woods. The heated bath rooms were appreciated. We will be back again.

Mountain Biking Blue Racer & Blazing Star Loops | Beach Ridge MTB Trail | Oak Openings | Swanton, OH
Oak Openings park is part of the Toledo Metroparks system, our Ohio neighbors to the West. The park contains several unique ecosystems within its 5000 acres, and has a lot to offer: hiking, horse back riding, camping, an all-purpose trail, and a recently added mountain bike trail.
The Beach Ridge Mountain Bike Trail system consists of smooth dirt singletrack on mostly flat terrain that winds along several creeks through a forested environment. It is made up of several interconnected loop trails: Hognose Snake, Blue Racer, Blazing Star, Badger, and Flying Squirrel, altogether totaling 12 miles of excellent mountain bike trails. This video provides highlights of the Blue Race and Blazing Star loops.
The Blue Racer (1.9 miles) and Blazing Star (1.6 miles) loops step up the difficulty compared to the beginner-friendly Hognose Snake Loop (video available here: It features tight, twisty turns, the occasional rocky and rooty sections, and a multitude of well-constructed wooden features (rollers, berms, tall bridges, skinnies, tabletops, and a teeter totter).
This video provides complete footage of the Hognose Snake loop. Stay tuned for future videos featuring the other loops in the Beach Ridge trail system.

Oak Openings Mountain Bike Trail - POV
Point of View footage of the new oak openings mountain bike trail near Toledo Ohio. Currently the Trail is about 5 miles long but construction is still on going and expected to include around 15 miles of single track trails. The elevation of the entire Toledo area is relatively low, so there are no difficult climbs that must be conquered to enjoy the trail. The trade off is the amount of pedaling, this is definitely a cross country trail. This is a Bi-Directional trail with a designated direction based on the day of the week, check out the trailhead map for more information.
Oaks Opening. I really love this trail.
we got a last ride up in northern Ohio. this trail is great for beginners and intermediate riders. Also check out their website and see the Tree House Master is building tree houses there that you will be able to rent .

Rainy Day Hike at Oak Openings Preserve Metropark
A little bit of rain didn’t stop Jordan and I from going on a day hike after work. Oak Openings is about an hour away from me and my go-to place if I need a quick getaway.
