Nice Ohio trail to shake the lead off. Little mucky this weekend but everything quite doable without trashing shoes.

Entering through the enchanted forest very dark and green and then muddy path but the final about a half mile was absolutely gorgeous

This is a very nice short hike to the top of the hill and also follows along a small creek at the top of the ridge, through some nice rock formations, pass by the lake (which has a nice view from the top of the ridge and you can actually walk all the way down to the lake) and pass by a small lil waterfall (which is frozen now). You can also add am extra 0.6 miles by doing the Pine Crest Loop Trail too.

Came to spend some time with evergreens since all the deciduous greenery in Ohio is gone for the winter... pines did not disappoint :) Trail itself isn’t bad - a few big inclines but it’s short and manageable!

It’s pretty and the pine trees are beautiful. However, Morgan knob trail was not that special. It dead ends and there isn’t much to see there. The loop is mostly views of the ravine. Which I think was pretty cool. It was very dry when we went. No waterfall. If you are short on time do pike crest loop

Cool waterfall and rock formations on the loop part. This is actually Morgan's Knob and Morgan's Knob Loop combined. A few steep inclines.

Nice easy loop hike on a combination of the Morgan's Knob trail and Morgan's Knob Loop. Not much of a view from the knob in the summer due to tree cover, but still an enjoyable quick hike.

Very nice, moderate trail but it is closed the last 100 yards or so before the knob and what i thought would be a view.

I’m a HUGE fan of Salt Fork, but this is probably the least interesting trail of them all. It’s a short hike leading to a dead end hill with no view. If you take the Morgan Loop on the way back there is a ravine and what is supposed to be a waterfall. It was a drip, but I was there in June. Go to Shadbush instead.

This trail is basically just an old forest road to the top of a hill with no view. Skip this trail and do pine crest loop which leaves the same parking lot. That trail has views galore, especially of giant boulders and the lake. This trail was super disappointing after that.

The entrance to this trail is magical. Old, thick pine growth gives it an enchanted feel that my kids LOVED. Most of the trail is easy and well-maintained. Near the end, there's a steep climb that can be quite muddy if it's rained recently. My 3 and 5 year olds walked the whole trail on their own. Very kid friendly, with a wide path. We continued past the trail end a bit to find the large rocks others had mentioned (which is why my son had chosen it). It's a nice place to take a rest and explore a little. On the way back, we took the (red) Morgan's Knob Loop trail, which was SPECTACULAR. You walk along the top of a steep ravine for a while, and the opposite views are amazing. There's also a cluster of giant rocks perfect for exploring, and a short side-path down to the lake that we didn't check out. This trail is much narrower and has a lot of overgrowth. It doesn't seem to be listed separately here, but it was a fantastic detour.

This is one of my most favorite of places. The trail starts with a pine tree forest of pure beauty! You literally walk thru the pine trees as if a gateway to an enchanted peace filled getaway. It hadn’t rained for a while when we went but the trail was super muddy. We had to do a lot of walking beside the trail in places as it was just so muddy!
