Return to Pickerington Ponds

  • Pickerington Ponds/ Glacier Knoll Picnic Area

    7680 Wright Road, Canal Winchester, OH (map)

    39.885057 -82.798973

  • We will meet at the Glacier Knoll Picnic Area
  • Back to the Ponds!  We are bringing the After Work Hikes back to the East Side for another hike at Pickerington Ponds.  We will be hiking about 4 miles today:  The Arrowhead Trail is about 1.7 miles, then we'll go across the street to the Wood Duck Picnic Area and hike the Kildeer Trail (1.1 miles).  This is not a difficult hike.  But I would recommend hiking boots or shoes.  It was very wet and muddy last time.

     

    Directions:  
    From I-270, take U.S. 33 east toward Lancaster about 3 miles. Take the Canal Winchester/State Route 674/Gender Road exit. Turn left onto Gender Road, go about 1 mile and turn right onto Wright Road. Go about 1 mile to Bowen Road and turn left. Glacier Knoll picnic and parking area is about 0.25 miles on left

    Sorry guys, I'm going to cancel this one. I fell this morning while running and I'm pretty banged up. Plus hiking in ankle deep mud isn't much fun. This is a great park. We'll reschedule it.

    It's been raining all day; I assume the event will be rescheduled (???) walking around in 5 inches of mud isn't much fun- How do we find out about cancellations / rescheduling, i.e. on outdoor events such as this?

    Bring waterproof boots or shoes. It's likely to be wet out there.

      If this keeps up, we won't be there. We did the wet walk last time!

    Hello- I have never been but would like to attend. Where is the Glacial Knoll picnic are in relation to Pickerington Ponds? And is this hike dog friendly? Thanks for any help. John McCabe

      The directions in the posting are to Glacier Knoll. Also the Park Map link should help. We are taking unpaved nature trails, so it is not dog friendly.
