Caldwell Nature Preserve
Caldwell Nature Preserve
Carthage, Ohio, United States
Easy: 2.7 miles, 1-3 hours
2.7 mile trail near Carthage, Ohio

A really great, little known gem.  Trails wind along ridges formed by Mill Creek Watershed. Good elevation change as you pass over bridges through gorges.  Forest is full of mature Beech, Walnut, Oak.  This preserve is a glimpse at what the Mill Creek valley might have been before industrialization.

Yellow Springs, Ohio, United States
Hiking | 0.0 miles
After the storm, I just had to come and check out the scenery. The entry to the park was rather deep but I had no issues! No fish tailing for me today! Love snowdays!

Buckeye Trail to South Tow Path Loop
by aguilarr on Mar 10, 2009
Peninsula, Ohio, United States
Hiking | 7.2 miles
Great workout with steep grades, creek crossing, and some rough terrain.  I would have given it a higher rating if it weren't for the fact that you have to walk through Peninsula.  First half of the trail is great though.

Hocking Hills OH

Hocking Hills, Ohio, United States
Hiking | 4.9 miles
I started at the Vistors Center at Old Man's Cave which has concessions in the summer time, restrooms, and a Nature Center. I hiked up to the Upper Falls, then doubled back to the Lower Falls, and then proceeded to Cedar Falls. The trail between Old Man's Cave and Cedar's Falls is somewhat challenging with a few places you need to climb over fallen trees or squeeze through a slot in the...

4th of July Weekend HikeA nice hike on the Redwing Trail with a few pleasant surprises along the way. Temps were in the 70s, low humidity... everything was still very lush. In the field ran into good company. A doe and her fawn ran by as I was examining the many blackberry bushes.

The E - Eastern Portion
by helmespc on Mar 30, 2012
Mount Airy Center, Ohio, United States
Hiking | 7.4 miles
Took a shot at walking the Eastern most part of the 'E' after work. This is an awesome medium length hike. It has a few notable hills, but they are well spread throughout the hike. At times, the 'E' is poorly marked, but through much of it, there are white spots, or white spots with a red 'E' marked about 7 feet up on the trees. Look through the slideshow for a...

Cuyahoga Valley - buckeye trail
by hmiller001 on Feb 24, 2012
Jaite, Ohio, United States
Hiking | 8.6 miles
This is a fantastic, challenging trail.  However, I came at the wrong time of the year to truly enjoy it...I spent way too much time getting through or around water-logged trails...and it did rain that day too, which didn't help.  This is definitely a rustic, natural, ungroomed trail...lots of true water hazards on the trail, and the make-shift bridges can be dangerous (fell once, and thankfully didn't break or twist anything).Once I...

Salt Run Trail
by aguilarr on Feb 14, 2009
Peninsula, Ohio, United States
Hiking | 3.7 miles
Good moderate trail with plenty of good scenery.  I would have given it 5 stars but a good part of it is located near the road.  Granted, the traffic is not heavy but even the occasional car passing by, in some ways, ruins the hike.

Pine Lane to North Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath

Boston, Ohio, United States
Hiking | 8.1 miles
I rate it moderate to difficult due to the steep grades and the makeshift bridges that must be crossed.

Hiking | 6.4 miles
Cuyahoga Valley NP – Ledges Trailhead; meandering through several loops.   Sunday, May 26, 2013  For our second excursion of 2013 to Cuyahoga Valley National Park, we decided to go to The Ledges trailhead and take a walk. After studying the map, Lynn figured we could cover The Ledges and several of the adjacent shorter loops today. Works for me.  So we left the house just after 9:00 AM and were at the trailhead...

Last year I decided to treat myself and celebrate my birthday in one of my favorite places on earth during peak fall color season. I'm doing the same thing again this year. Hocking Hills is like a mini Grand Canyon. You will never believe terrain like this exists in southern Ohio. Just look at the pics from last year: http://camping.meetup... Location: The place we are staying is Indian Mound Lodge: http://indianmoundlod... The place has 8 beds (4...
