“A forested trail through a state nature preserve- complete with a waterfall!”— Michaela Schoeffler
Located in the Boord State Nature Preserve, this is a hidden gem of southeast Ohio. The trail rolls through quiet, hemlock tree-filled woods and follows a stream that is framed by cliffs and overhangs.
The highlight is a waterfall in a picturesque sandstone gorge about 60-80 feet deep. This is the kind of route you should visit several times a year to see the landscape in every season!
