Battelle Darby Double Loop

Battelle Darby Double Loop Professional Review and Guide

"This hike explores Metro Parks’ largest park, Battelle Darby. First, saddle along the banks of Big Darby Creek, then pass under a historic railroad to begin a loop on the Terrace Trail. Walk in lush forests exuding a backwoods atmosphere. Just before returning to Big Darby Creek, you will join the Ancient Trail.

This second loop cruises bottomlands along the stream, then climbs to a ?eld where you can see the Fort Ancient Mound, a visible part of an aboriginal Ohioan village that once thrived there. Return back through the valley of Big Darby Creek."
