Glacier Ridge Metro Park:Marsh Hawk and Ironweed Trails Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Now surrounded by farmlands, Glacier Ridge was named for the moraine that was left by the retreating Wisconsinan glacier. Today the area features a restored 250-acre wetland, a boardwalk, and an observation tower for a leisurely and informative hike.

The 1,037-acre Glacier Ridge Metro Park offers multiuse trail options in a condensed area known for its wetland education access and public programs. One of the newer metro parks in the system, Glacier Ridge features agricultural land, woodlots, successional areas, and large open fields. The paved multi-use trails are both bike and dog friendly. Plastic bags for canine cleanup are available from the wooden kiosks located along Ironweed Trail."

"Walk the prairie covering a rise in the flat landscape that was created by a receding glacier 15,000 years ago. Urban sprawl has worked its way up from Columbus, but is held at bay by the Glacier Ridge Metro Park. The Marsh Hawk Trail takes hikers in a big circle, but it’s not a boring stroll in the park. Vernal pools, wetlands, woodscapes, grasslands, and a wind and solar learning center are the life of this hiking party." Read more
