Cold weather is on its way this week to Cuyahoga National Park in Ohio! When nighttime temperatures drop into the 40s, early morning hikers may encounter fog and/or slick trails in low areas, especially where wet leaves are present on the trail. As the temps drop even farther, watch for frost or light ice on steps and boardwalks. Wear shoes or boots with a sturdy hiking sole, and consider taking a walking stick for balance. Cold-morning walks can be a special treat under the coloring fall leaves.
