There is a nice parking lot here that will accommodate close to 8 vehicles. A kiosk tells about the history of the land, purpose of the preserve, and maps of the trails.

The Yellow Buckeye trail is part of the Gladys Riley Goldenstar Lily Nature Preserve. The trail features switchbacks that wind up the hill and then down around the loop. Near the top you can see a nice view of the valley around Scioto Brush Creek. This is a tremendous place for spring wildflowers. There is another trail that is a 1.25 mile loop that can easily be explored at the same time. If you enjoy this trail, please consider donating to preservation at arcofappalachia.org.
