Runner Notes

Description

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.

A meandering walk through the Jean V. Woodhull Prairie of Possum Creek. There are two access points to the trail, one off the entrance road into the park and one next to the parking lot for the fishing ponds. The trail follows a wide mowed path through the prairie. The trail is highlighted by the horseshoe-like sculpture in the middle of the prairie. With birdhouses all around the field, there are tons of tree swallows swooping and diving all over the place. There are some wet areas on the field which present a nice break in the field. This walk is flat, easy, and a really good way to get some fresh air.

Flora & Fauna

Golden Rod will be a highlight in late spring through summer
