Staff Pick: Holiday scavenger hunt
Blendon Woods features hardwood forests cut deeply by ravines and small streams that should resemble a Currier and Ives print beneath this recent blanket of snow. Plenty of shorter connected trails make this park a good place for cold-weather exploration.
Find out what lies along Blendon's seven special paths during the Holiday Scavenger Hunt, a self-guided discovery tour offered 12-4 p.m. daily between Christmas and New Year's Day. The two-mile tours start from the nature center, and spiced hot chocolate will be waiting when you get back.
