Easy trail on the darby metro park system
hiked all the trails in the park. Lots of dog walking. on the south side the freeway is very noisy. .
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.
