5.2 mi 8.4 km Athens, OH
Minor Issues
Some Mud, Fallen Trees - Not too muddy despite all the rain. But very overgrown in places. Bring trekking poles to push away thorns.

The Plains, OH
7.2 mi 11.7 km The Plains, OH
Minor Issues
Muddy, Fallen Trees - This borders on 'bad' conditions. Extremely overgrown with tons of thorns and hidden logs across the path. Tons of poison ivy as well. Recommend long pants and sleeves, and trekking poles to reveal the path. There is a detour for part of the clockwise loop - look for signs at Campsite 3, and there are a few sparsely marked sections. The pine plantation is nice and peaceful though.
