Blacklick Creek Greenway Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"A brick paved path welcomes hikers at the parking area and then leads to the nature center and the trailhead. This hike connects the Buttonbush, Walter A. Tucker, Maple Loop, and Beech Trails to make one round route. The first section runs along the edge of a woodland swamp and a forest, while the second section explores deeper into the hardwood forest. The third section encircles a woodland pond and passes through a picnic area and playgrounds."

"The oldest metro park in the system, this 643-acre park features relatively undisturbed forest and wildlife with open meadows, fields, and seasonal ponds.Blacklick Woods officially opened to the public in 1948, making it the oldest metro park in the system. Its combination of paved multiuse trails for joggers and dogs and mostly untouched forestland nestled within a nature preserve also make it one of the region’s busiest metro parks. The park currently receives nearly one million visitors a year."
