Oxford, Ohio's Maple Syrup Festival

The 2021 Maple Syrup Festival has been canceled but there are ways to keep the spirit of this beloved event alive and well!

Walk the Trails at Hueston Woods

The trails at Hueston Woods are still open for you to walk and enjoy, and the rising temperatures and blooming bits of nature make this a perfect time of year to get out there and explore.

Hit up a trail then go hang out by the water on the beach (or bring your kayak and get in the water). We also recommend bringing your four-legged friends and spending the afternoon playing catch in the dog park. There are endless ways to enjoy the park, so take your time and see everything it has to offer.

This map of the park will help you get around!

Oxford also has plenty of trails to get you out and breathing in that crisp end-of-winter air that you’re used to getting during your Maple Syrup Festival tours. Check out the list of some of our favorite trail spots, then go to the Miami University Natural Areas page for a full list of trails throughout town.
