With spring around the corner, many people will turn their attention to spring hiking and the Bend Park and Recreation Department offers a number of opportunities. Several fitness hikes are being offered every Tuesday beginning in April and continuing through May from 9:30 am until 2:30 pm. These trips cover three to five miles at a moderate pace and take in many of Central Oregon's favorite trails including Smith Rock, Suttle Lake, Paulina Creek, Skeleton Cave, and Skyliner Creek. The cost is $22 per session for in-district residents, or $26 for others.

For those 50 and older, "Rainbow Seekers Hikes" will be offered Tuesdays beginning March 15 and continuing through April 5. These hikes traverse from five to seven miles over easy to moderate trails at a comfortable pace. Session fees are $72 for in-district residents and $86 for those living outside of the district.

For those wanting a more vigorous hike, the "Trailpacers Hikes" cover seven to 10 miles at a steady pace with moderate elevation gains. These hikes are offered every Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sessions are offered from April 7 to 21, April 28 to May 12, and May 19 to June 2. The fee for in-district residents is $69 and for out-of-district participants it's $83.

For those who may be interested in a bit of history and lore along with their hikes, BPRD is offering "Trails & Tales Hikes," April 18 to 25, and May 2 to 9. These three to five-mile hikes discuss the region's past while exploring different historic outings. In-district cost is $50 and out of district is $60.
