Flint Ridge State Memorial Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The American Indians considered this wide ridge an important source of the vital mineral flint. Today, the material and the efforts to extract it remain the highlight of the place. Trails lead trekkers through the maze of ancient flint quarries and the surrounding deciduous forest that covers the ridge and its slopes. Allow extra time to pause and reflect on the edge of the shallow quarries and ponder the lives lived here hundreds of years ago."

Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

"This historic hike heads to an important resource for aboriginal Ohioans and beyond who came to quarry for the ideal stone with which to create points for arrows, spears, and other tools. Here you will hike past former quarry pits and along flint outcrops. The Creek Trail leads to big trees and impressive woods below the main quarry site. Visit the museum in season. A second nature trail explores other flint quarries north of the main grounds." Read more
