This is a nice, easy trail with some good views and a visit to the Voss Site, notable for archeological discoveries.

went here a few weeks ago during the week. overall really nice trail. no dogs are allowed but no one yelled at me for having mine with me.

The trails themselves were great... however, this app description says the trails are pet friendly for leashed dogs~ the signage at each trail said differently....
NO PETS. We drove here with our dog to walk on these trails.

love this trail!!!

This is my favorite dog-friendly trail around Columbus. It’s nothing amazing, but you can get a nice view of the scenic Darby Creek. It’s a looped trail that takes you through prairie and woods. For three seasons you get a great view of the famous Ohio prairie wildflowers. It’s also a nice place for birding. People complain about ticks, but it’s a natural grassland. They are going to be there.

Exactly as it says. Nothing to write home about. And we needed up coming home covered in ticks.

Easy. Water adds interest. Lots of bird sounds.

Super easy gravel and grass trail with moderate traffic. There is a trail head on the left side of the parking lot at the end of the prairie and natural play area.

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.

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.
