Took the Tulip Tree and Toadshade trails in early September. Tulip Tree is flatter and less exciting but still very pretty. Toadshade goes through more varied forest and along the Tiffin River for a stretch, but any time it is warm enough for mosquitos, there will be a lot of them, especially near the river. Toadshade offers a river overlook and goes past a historic house and cemetery. A pleasant couple hours walk. Relatively well-kept; Toadshade crosses the road at a long jog in a couple places and isn't well-marked.

Decent hike, very messy in wet weather. If you like the critters in the woods, we saw a salamander; not my thing, but I suppose some would find it cool.
