Best hike I've done in Ohio! Challenging in areas, I loved that it got hilly and narrow. However, didn't like that parts of it were on the main road. Make sure to pay attention to signs because it's easy to get off track to other trails at some parts (I recommend taking a phone picture of the trail markers to refer to). Also, according to the maps the trail is actually 13 miles not 11 and takes roughly 5 hours.

Great hike! Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because of the slightly sketchy highway walk.

It's a good trail maintained pretty well if you do the whole loop bring lunch
