2.7 mile trail near Carthage, Ohio A really great, little known gem. Â Trails wind along ridges formed by Mill Creek Watershed. Good elevation change as you pass over bridges through gorges. Â Forest is full of mature Beech, Walnut, Oak. Â This preserve is a glimpse at what the Mill Creek valley might have been before industrialization. Â Â
Very fun and beautiful hike. They've closed the trail down by the Mill Creek as well as the two loops further away from the parking lot due to the ash trees. The trail down by the creek has fallen into some disrepair and involves a little bit of scrambling to follow the original path. You can still get to the creek easy enough and can follow your path in back out. The second loop from the parking lot is still very accessible. It was getting late and the path to the third loop was difficult to find (never did find it) so we saved that for next time. A beautiful forest with large old trees, creeks and the river. Easy to moderate.
