Big Woods Hike at Hueston Woods State Park

Big Woods Hike at Hueston Woods State Park Professional Review and Guide

"This hike travels through what is considered to be the largest stand of old-growth forest in Ohio. Hikers wander the Big Woods through Hueston Woods State Nature Preserve, enjoying large sugar maples, red oaks, and beech trees. Reach Sugar Camp, an oldtime maple syrup tapping house on the shores of Acton Lake. Pick up the West Shore Trail where an undulating path offers multiple views and solitude. After backtracking, you will take new trails with yet more big trees before returning to the trailhead."

An enjoyable, but fairly strenuous hike along the west shore of the lake. You will see a lot of wild birds fishing along the shore and bull frogs that dive into the water when you disturb them. The rating is due to that fact that the trails are not very well marked.
