Trails are plentiful here and in varying distances. Pick up a map to see all the options. Most include striking views and closeness to Big Darby Creek and river. There are three entrances to the park. The newest includes a fabulous nature center and bison roaming the fields. One of the best parks and trails the Columbus area has to offer.

Peaceful walk

The hiking is some of the best you're going to get from the Columbus metro parks. Short trails though

Very easy and really dog friendly.

Very nice trail for the dog. The trail is well marked and wide. The only problem I had was the ticks were very bad. I walked only half the trail and picked 5 ticks off my dog. So, have a well known tick collar that works or other types of tick prevention.

hiked all the trails in the park. Lots of dog walking. on the south side the freeway is very noisy. .

Amazing park! This is where family fun meets awesome trail hiking. Great areas for kids to play, including a bison area. Bathrooms were very clean and updated. Trails were great! Between steep sloaps and amazing views this place cannot be beat! Also can bike on trails.

Greenway Trail: The Greenway Trail is longer. It extends north from the Oak Grove picnic area to West Broad Street (U.S. 40). It runs through what used to be part of the Galbreath Darby Dan horse farm. This includes a 1 1/8 mile track with which you can add extra miles to your walk, run or ride. My dogs love to run here. Early in the morning or in the gloaming of sundown, I have seen coyotes at a distance on this path. I often see deer and hawks. There are even corralled buffalo along the path. This is a nice, easy, level path that you can make as long as you'd like. It is a great training path for a marathon.

This is a basic trail with some wooded area and some open area. My lab loved it. One warning though, there isn't water directly on the trail, but about 40 yards away. If you have a water dog, they will bolt for the water! Be prepared! We only saw one other person the whole time on the trail. Really nice.

We strung together a few of trails of Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park. We started at the Park office taking the Cobshell Loop trail (0.8 miles) We took the Indian Ridge Trail (0.6 mile end to end) and picked up the Terrace Trail (2 mile loop) and the Ancient Trail (2 mile loop and returned for a total of 5.98 miles according to GPS. We enjoyed open meadows and forest as well as stream beds and higher areas. The trail is wide and well kept and makes for enjoying hiking with a partner. There are plenty of benches and trash recepticles so the trails were very clean.

went here last year, hiked about half of it before it got dark, nice trail, some scenic views of the river.will go back soon.
