9th Annual Plaid Friday Hikes

Black Friday? More like, plaid Friday. Once again we’ll thumb our nose at wanton consumerism by moving our bodies in our beautiful city. Each year we pick a great urban route and head out together to explore, be in community, and enjoy the late fall weather.

Once again there are two routes to choose from – a morning easier route, and an afternoon advanced route.

Hike 1: The Beautiful River Route 9:30 – 12:00. This is a favorite route. We’ll hike along the Ohio River exploring Sawyer Point, Serpentine Wall, and northern Kentucky. We’ll cross three bridges and two rivers in this flat and gentle walk.
This route is appropriate for strollers. Approximately 4 miles

Hike 2: The Recycling and Reuse Lower Price Hill Route – 1:00 – 4:00.  We are excited to co-lead this route with our friends from the Cincinnati Recycling & Reuse Hub (CRRH). This route will start at CRRH’s Lower Price Hill headquarters. We’ll get a tour of the space and learn about the mission of this great nonprofit that’s working hard to divert hard-to-recycle materials from the landfill. Our Hub friends will join us on the hike, so you’ll have lots of time to learn about their work and ways that you can reduce your waste. 

After the Hub, we’ll head out to see the beautiful and underappreciated Lower Price Hill. Lower Price Hill is filled with amazing community projects, and incredible architecture and buildings. From Lower Price Hill, we’ll trek up Price Hill on the Incline Run, a short trail that features the remnants of the old Price Hill Incline. Once on the top of Price Hill, we’ll enjoy views of the city and take in the Incline District before turning back down the hill to where we started.

This route can be done with strollers. This route contains one significant climb. Approximately 4 miles.
