Located minutes from Granville, Ohio in a rural setting off of SR 37 and 40 minutes from Columbus, Ohio, 15 minutes from Newark, Ohio this park has the right accessibility for most beginner to intermediate hikers. Wide trails in most places also make it very popular with horsemen. Park at the gravel paved horseman's parking lot towards the back of the park before the tree line. Behind the announcement board if you walk through the grass towards the tree you will find the trail head to your right a boulder with a plaque. Go straight or left (it loops back) then follow trail 15 through the prairie and either go straight or cut right (for a shorter walk). Take a map with you and explore all the trails. There is a variety from prairie, woods and it's not very hilly. Good for mountain biking, walking, trekking, cross country skiing, hiking, horseback riding. The versatility of this park makes it a favorite of mine.

good in the winter but avoid after rain because of mud from horses. Not moderate trail. It's easy.

Not a very interesting park. My dog was covered in ticks when we got home.

The trail system is wide, flat and easy to navigate with a copy of the park map. The extensive horse use detracts from an otherwise nice trail that is perfect for an easy walk with children or cross country skiing. There are only a few short sections of single track trail that can be avoided.

This trail is very easy; not even close to moderate.

well, I'm not a fan of sharing trails with horses.....and there were definitely horse hoofs throughout trails. not bad, but not a lot of interest. I picked 5 ticks off after 1/2 hour.

A trail predominantly used by horses that is a little boring to hike. There are only a few hills and many long stretches of flat ground. The trail has markers but my wife and I often found it difficult to figure out which way to go. I would not recommend this trail for hikers but we were nearby visiting family so we gave it a try.

The trail scenery is great! It is primarily a horse trail. I went just after a hard rain to test out my gear. I agree it is a moderate level trail due to the fact that the trail is not marked very well and a new hiker could get turned around easily. There were no other hikers when I went.
Found the place where they have Civil War reenactments.

Beautiful time of year to hike the trails. Colorful crunching of leaves under your boots.

Great for the beginner and kids. Flat with a lot of wooded areas.
