Adults and children alike will love exploring the blend of nature, history and community at Possum Creek. Hike together in one of Ohio’s best examples of a tall grass prairie. It’s hard to imagine that this home for butterflies and bluebirds was once degraded farmland. Argonne Lake’s open vistas of woodlands and wildlife provide the perfect setting for fishing for catfish, bass or trout. Youngsters will love visiting the farm to see the barnyard animals and learn about the food we eat. Camp overnight or picnic with family and friends. Discover remnants of the past along the Argonne Forest Trail. Come back often to enjoy the seasonal changes and make outdoor memories that will last a lifetime.
The purple trail is a wonderful walk through the woods. It is an easy, leisurely trail with much to see. The trail winds its way through the developed forest of Possum Creek and lets you see its abandoned amusement park features. These features include a nice old stone work bridge, as well as a dance floor, and the remnants of an old pool.
Flora & Fauna
Tons of bugs make this an excellent trail for exploring the bottom of the food chain for the little ones. This trail provides perfect habitat for many warblers, thrushes, and smaller birds of prey.
