The Camp & Canoe Capital of Ohio Is Ready for Spring!
Spring is right around the corner and that means it is time to Discover Mohican! The Camp & Canoe Capital of Ohio is ready for the warm weather and events to continue throughout the year. Campgrounds are opening, canoes, rafts and kayaks will soon float down the Mohican River, sporting events will begin and the horses will be out on the trails.
Spring also means the Annual Mohican Wildlife Weekend. Mohican Wildlife Weekend is a celebration of wildlife, heritage, habitat and natural history. There are seven sites with over 30 programs available. Visit mohicanwildlifeweekend.com for more information.
It is also time to put that training to use and join in on the sporting events taking place in Mohican. Forget the PR Run, in April, will take 300 runners for a scenic and challenging run through Mohican State Park; crossing rivers and more. The month of May is the world renowned Mohican Mountain Bike 100. This race will crisscross four counties along a single loop, climbing more than 11,000 feet and go toe-to-toe with the top pros on this legendary ultra-endurance loop in Northeastern Ohio. After those exciting events, take a rest and then challenge the Mohican Trail 100 Run. Often referred to as the MO100, the race has become one of the nation’s premier ultra-marathons. It is reportedly the fifth oldest ultra-running race across the Nation.
History is alive with the museum showcasing a rare 34 star American flag on display, as well as one of the oldest motorcycle sidecars. Enjoy sponsored hikes along Mohican State Park and Mohican-Memorial State Forest. These hikes, with the help of the Mohican Trails Club, will showcase some of the hidden gems of the park; that few only get to see.
Make sure to make time to venture out to the Wolf Creek Grist Mill opening in April. Considered to be one of the oldest working mills in Ohio, they also host many worthwhile events.
