This hike wanders throughout Sharon Woods Metro Park, using a collection of nature trails. First you will take the Spring Creek Trail along its namesake, passing a pond and wetlands, then you will head over to the Edward S. Thomas State Nature Preserve. This path explores a protected parcel of central Ohio with old-growth trees, the size of which will amaze. Next head for yet another water feature—Schrock Lake. Walk along this aquatic centerpiece of Sharon Woods before taking the long way back to the trailhead. As with most Metro Parks, Sharon Woods has bountiful picnic and play facilities, as well as the paved Multipurpose Trail, which completely encircles the park.
