Underground Railroad Walks
Runaway slaves who traveled the Underground Railroad through northwestern Ohio were met with ignorance, indifference, and compassion. Join our costumed characters on a 1-mile walk on the flat, unpaved Forest Point Trail, exploring the complexities of the past. Enjoy outdoor activities while you await your walk. Octagon Shelter. Walks depart every half hour between 1 and 2:30 p.m.
