The Heritage Trail was created in 1963 by Boy Scout Troop 323. Changes in land ownership, floods, storms, and erosion erased the trail by the early 1980s. In 1981, a new trail route was created. Today, the 20.22-mile Heritage Trail begins at Litzenberg Memorial Woods, south of U.S. Route 224 West, and ends at Van Horn Cemetery. It connects parks, conservation areas, historic sites, Findlay reservoirs, and area landmarks over a variety of trail surfaces, including dirt, mud, sand, grass, gravel, asphalt roads and potentially through water due to flooding. Hikers on the Heritage Trail experience remote natural settings in Hancock County and urban conditions in the heart of Findlay. Hiking locations from Litzenberg Memorial Woods include Indian Green Cemetery, Liberty Landing, Rawson Park, Great Karg Well Historical Site, Findlay Downtown Riverwalk, Civitan Park, Centennial Park, Riverside Park Waterfront, Eastpoint Area, Riverbend Recreation Area, Findlay Reservoirs and Van Horn Cemetery. Yellow trail markers with black directional arrows mark the route. They can be found on utility poles and trail posts at intersections and other locations along the way. Before hiking the entire Heritage Trail to earn a patch and/or a medal, register at the Hancock Park District Administrative Office located at 1424 East Main Cross Street.Show more
