The air may have a chill in it, but that didn’t stop people from getting out and taking a hike along the historic Miami Erie Canal.

The Heritage Trails Park District helping people stay active this winter with the Cabin Fever Hike Series.  Today’s Spring Forward 5 K hike was the 3rd of the 4 hike the park district has planned for the winter.  This series gives people the chance to not only look for the signs of spring, but walk along the historic path used to help build this part of Ohio.

"The Cabin Fever Hike Series we do a different section of trail for each one and encourages people to see a different portion of the Miami Erie Canal that they don’t normally hike and it gives them a new experience.  So each hike is a little different than the last one" says Terry McDonald from the Heritage Trails Park District.

The participants really enjoyed getting out and taking a walk or a run along the towpath and are encouraging others to do the same. 

"Start with a short walk, don’t try and overdo it the first day just come out and enjoy the area, the history and you will enjoy it and you will come back and do it again," says John McJunkin.

"I love this path, the Heritage park run path through here.  Me and my buddies come out and we run it, and we practice our 5k and 10K races out here.  It’s just perfect.  You get to see the canal and the history of it, and it’s just a nice place to relax" adds Rick Krogman

The final hike in the series will be April 8th from 1 to 3 pm at the Noble Township hall.
