Nice little 1.5 mile loop path through the woods. Nature viewing deck overlooking lake, excellent for birding. Trail well maintained with sand/clay base. Not too steep incline, good for all ages. 1/2 hr to 1 hr around full loop.

Great little gem in the city. Well maintained trail and spectacular wildlife blind viewing area at a pond. Counterclock-wise the trail is uphill with some good heart pumping areas but at 1.5 miles it isn't difficult. There is a large parking lot off lewis center rd with flush toilets. Will definitely go back again.

Nice trail. Pretty quiet. There wasn't many others on the trail when I was there. It has a cool play area if you have kids, but expect for them to get dirty. There's a nature observation deck but I haven't checked it out yet.

This is a great park, it has a few hills which is nice since Central Ohio is so flat, also there is a nice observation tower. The trails are well maintained and there are always park staff around if you ever need anything.
