very well maintained trail with lots of hills through beautiful forest. I'll be back again soon.

Lovely, lightly used trail. But I'd classify this trail as "easy"; graveled, flat path with little elevation gain/loss.

Easy 1.5 mile hike/walk. Very quiet, light traffic, clean grounds.

Trails were clean and easy to pass through. Scenery was beautiful and the fitness activities along the way were fun.

Sharon Woods is one of my favorite metro parks, partly because it is rarely as trafficked and busy despite being right off the highway. The park and trails are clean and well maintainted. Not sure why AllTrails only lists one trail here - there are actually several.

GREAT trail. First time in a long time that I’ve been in the middle of the city and felt like I was far north in the woods. Small amount of traffic noise. But we didn’t SEE ANYONE for more than two hours. Gets a 5 Star out of us! I live in Colorado and am from Wyoming!

Nice short trail with lots of gentle hills. Trailhead has well maintained restrooms, and ample parking.

Very easy and very pretty

Inniswood used to be a great place to go and be immersed in nature...it was magical, quite fairy tale like, but the aspiring photographers have ruined the atmosphere. Tried to walk the trails today and had to make my away around the popup photography studios all over the park. People bring ridiculous amounts of equipment and props and block the paths and trails despite a sign posted at the front asking them not to. Actually passed one family that had nailed a sign to a tree for their backdrop and had hung their wardrobe from another. One family was using a balloon tank to inflate helium balloons (which were floating up to the sky). This is not what I want to see when trying to enjoy nature. I’ll be scratching Inniswood off my “must do” list until they get this under control.

Solid trails through regrowth forest and recovering crop fields. Based on trail layouts, several loop options from flat to rolling forest. Definitely worth another visit.

Great loop! Quiet trail and well maintained.

Love this loop! Good chance to see deer, a bit holly, nice and shaded. Plus it showed me the sledding hill since winter is coming.

Nice little 1.5 mile loop path through the woods. Nature viewing deck overlooking lake, excellent for birding. Trail well maintained with sand/clay base. Not too steep incline, good for all ages. 1/2 hr to 1 hr around full loop.

Great little gem in the city. Well maintained trail and spectacular wildlife blind viewing area at a pond. Counterclock-wise the trail is uphill with some good heart pumping areas but at 1.5 miles it isn't difficult. There is a large parking lot off lewis center rd with flush toilets. Will definitely go back again.

Great for biking. Nice views and not to busy.

Dogs are not permitted on this trail. They are on the shorter trails in the park, so not a great place for the pups.

Nice trail. Pretty quiet. There wasn't many others on the trail when I was there. It has a cool play area if you have kids, but expect for them to get dirty. There's a nature observation deck but I haven't checked it out yet.

This is a great park, it has a few hills which is nice since Central Ohio is so flat, also there is a nice observation tower. The trails are well maintained and there are always park staff around if you ever need anything.
