I visited this park on my own and was happy to find it is probably my second favorite metro park now. The trail I walked on was gravel and some dirt and super shady the whole time. The trail it’s self was comparable to high banks without the hills. I did a small 2-3 mileContinue reading “Blacklick Woods Metro Park”
This morning I picked up Diana at 8:30 and we drove about 30 minutes to walnut woods metro park despite my many wrong turns. We parked at the buckeye area and started our day on the buckeye trail. Diana has never hiked before but she walks really far all the time so I was excitedContinue reading “Walnut Woods Metro Park 7/23/18”

Today Jeff and I visited Clear Creek Metro Park which is the farthest one from Columbus. It is an hour drive and it’s almost right next to hocking hills. We hiked from one end of the park to the other and walked back on the main road next to the creek for a total ofContinue reading “Clear Creek Metro Park 5/1/18”
