MOUNT VERNON — The Knox County Park District invites you to make plans to bike Knox County’s multiuse trails this spring/summer as their Moonlit Miles series returns. Saturday will begin the first of three trail travels. This ride will begin at the Kokosing Gap Trailhead at 297 Duff Street in Gambier from 8-10 p.m. This relaxing full moon or near full moon ride was very popular last year as hosted by the Knox County Park District and this year marks it’s return. Experience the trails you have come to know and love in a unique way.

Participants must provide their own helmets and helmets must be worn at all times. New this season, participants will be provided headlamps with red lights for use during the ride to the first 30 individuals. Each ride averages about eight miles roundtrip. This bike ride will highlight the Blue Full Moon of May which is known as the Flower Moon to signify the flowers that bloom during this month. There is a myriad of wildflowers which bloom in May in the Northern Hemisphere, where these traditional Full Moon names originated.
