Highbanks Hike

Highbanks Hike Professional Review and Guide

"This hike visits most of the highlights at Highbanks Metro Park. From the nature center, walk along steep shale ravines and through forest to a meadow observation deck. Next, head past a homesite and re-created cemetery of early area settlers.

Hike by prehistoric earthworks from aboriginal Ohioans before reaching an overlook 110 feet above the Olentangy State Scenic River, then visit a wildlife blind astride a wetland. Finally, stop by a burial mound left by the ancient Adena Indians. The wellmarked and maintained trails are not too steep, making this hike doable by most trail enthusiasts."
