“An easy route through one of central Ohio's old growth forests.”— Andrew Grachek
Family Friendly The allowance of being up close to your surroundings will let children be able to touch geographical history up to millions of years older than they.
From the Nature Center head out east on the Coyote Run Trail, at around 1.3 miles continue forward onto the western most loop of the Coyote Run Trail. Once the trail doubles back there should be an intersection for the Dripping Rock Trail.
Turn right and head in westerly direction. You'll then come across a connector trail on your right that leads the the Big Meadows Path. Continue west on the Big Meadows Path, as it makes a sharp right hand-er you'll see a connection trail to the left that leads to the Scenic River Trail.
Follow that trail south until it loops back to the north and connects with the Multipurpose Trail. (I continued south without a trail and ran out of real estate.) The Multipurpose Trail interests with the Big Meadows Path, take a right, doubling back on the Dripping Rock Trail. Follow the Dripping Rock Trail until it returns to the Nature Center.
