Now that you know where the best places to go sled riding in Stark County are, here are a few tips to keep in mind as you are preparing for your sled riding adventure.
Review the safety rules with your children. Explain to them the importance of quickly moving out of the way after they reach the bottom of the hill, and explicitly show them the side of the hill to walk back up.
Make sure to dress for the weather. Wear layers that you can add/remove if you get too hot or cold, and bring along a hat and gloves.
Bring an extra pair of socks and shoes for the ride home. After being in the snow for that long, you'll appreciate the dry socks and warm shoes.
Pack some snacks, water to drink and some hot cocoa in a thermos for the car ride home.
