West Branch State Park's large lake with its many forks and coves is extremely popular with fishermen, boaters and swimmers The park's meadows and woodlots provide an excellent backdrop for camping, hiking and horseback riding

 We hiked the Buckeye South Trail between Knapp Road and Rocksprings Road. Trailheads are so overgrown as to be difficult to find. Lack of signage makes that even worse.  Numerous deadfalls obstruct the trail so that following trail markings can be difficult.

The park itself is a little hard to get around. Lots of different paths to get you to the same place but it's all wonderful. I'm never disappointed whenever I find a perfect view of that lake and set up my hammock. Beautiful spot with little foot traffic.

Hiked the buckeye trail. Very muddy from horses going through there. Other than that, it was very nice. I will revisit here often.

some of the best mountain biking in Ohio. A bonus is the three mile ride on the dam that provides a elevated view of the lake, which by the way is beautiful.

One of the best trails in Ohio! Very fun bridges and rock gardens. The single tracks are very fun and long with varying levels of difficulty.

This is a great trail system with lots of options for your experience level. Lots of fun with rocks and a few hills, nothing major and worth the drive.

This a GREAT trail! It starts out moderate and progresses nicely. The rock garden is extremely challenging. One of my personal favorites and would recommend this trail to any level rider.
