Excellent trails for regular hiking and also handicap accessible! We usually do a couple parks a day and hit a hot tub at night!

I absolutely adore Starved Rock State Park in Illinois but they could learn a thing or two from this park. It is super clean, the markings are much clearer, and the steps they have in better condition. Leaving that aside, just visiting Old Man's Cave,...More

Everyone in Ohio should visit these parks at least once. All of the "sites" are short and relatively easy hikes, typically less than 1 mile. Some have lots of steps. Spring or fall would be best.

This park has lots to do. Maybe too much. The natural features are great if you are into hiking. We were disappointed by the campground with lack of basics. (I reviewed it separately.). Put up another campground for those who want swimming pools, fancy dining,...More
