There are over 60,000 miles of trails in the United States, and Ottawa has some of the best to offer! Come out and celebrate National Take A Hike Day on Sunday November 17th with three free guided hikes around Ottawa, Illinois! Each hike focuses on a theme that makes Ottawa's parks unique: learn about ecology and preservation at Dayton Bluffs, hear fascinating tales of Ottawa's past on the I&M Canal, and experience some of the largest pieces of landscape art in the country at Buffalo Rock State Park! These hikes are an excellent way to get one last day out on the trails before winter sets in! . If you participate in any of the three hikes you will receive a free collectible button (one button per participant, while supplies last!) This event is free and open to all ages, but you must RSVP to participate in these hikes. Reserve a space for any hike, or all three, just visit www.pickusottawail.com or call 815-434-2737.
