Highbanks Metro Park Professional Review and Guide
"Before the hike, tour the comprehensive nature center to learn about the landscape. Tread through a forest to an observation deck at a meadow’s edge. Continue your walk through the woods and cross a few creeks on footbridges before arriving at the Overlook Trail. Pause at a small collection of gravestones and learn what life was like here two centuries ago. Pass through a break in prehistoric earthworks and reach the deck overlooking the Olentangy State Scenic River. Rejoin the Dripping Rock Trail and visit an Adena Indian mound before returning to the nature center."
