Hike on a natural trail

Back to Things to do

Take the road less traveled and hike on a natural trail in the Olmsted Parks!

Beat the heat by taking a hike under one of the lush tree canopies shading the natural trails in Cherokee, Iroquois, or Seneca parks. Hiking on natural trails not only lowers stress levels, improves your mood and enhances mental well-being – but even helps improve bone density, flexibility, coordination, and lowers blood pressure.

Use our interactive map to find a trail! Some of our favorites include:

The Corbly Trail, which leads to the scenic North Overlook in Iroquois Park
The shaded, paved Shawnee Park Riverwalk
The Yellow Loop by Chauffer’s Rest in Cherokee Park
