Make this part of your Tiffin visit. Get good directions-it's a little hard to find. Path is good any time of year, particularly fall.

Hiking trails, and more. Several lookouts and the river. A lot of walking but a nice place to visit. Love it in the spring and fall. Lots of color in the fall.

Perfect place for a light hike. Please be advised, there are many stairs to maneuver. There are also beautiful boardwalks that take you over the marshy areas that are present in spring and summer.

A nice little preserve to walk, sit and ponder. Very peaceful and tucked away off the road. Trails, animals and flowers....all in one walk.

This is a great place to get away from it all and go for a peaceful walk in the woods. The trails I would rate as easy and are well marked. The woods changes from season to season with wildflowers in the spring and my...More
