Blendon Woods Metro Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A walk in the woods drops down a ridge to stroll by a woodland creek that includes two crossings on footbridges. A short stint on a connector trail brings you back by your vehicle, but before leaving, a level, paved trail cuts through a woodland and ends at a waterfowl refuge with two wildlife observation blinds. A nature center filled with flora and fauna demands a visit before wrapping up a day in this pretty park. This hike combines the Brookside, Overlook, Ripple Rock, Pond, and Hickory Ridge Trails."
