Blacklick Woods has a lot a lot of firsts. It was the first park in the Columbus Metro Park system. It was where I led my first HikeOhio hike, and it is the first in the Commit to be Fit Fall Hike Series.
We are going to meet at the Nature Center at noon. This will be an hour before the official C2BF hike. We'll do the loop on the multi-use trail, head back to the nature center, then hike the backtrails (Buttonbush, Maple, & Beech Trail). We'll finish at the reservable shelters. I make no promises, but last year, CMP had Donato's Pizza and cold water.
On another note, this is our 5th birthday. I'm thinking of getting some wings and beer at BW3 afterward. Who's with me?
From I-270, take the East Main Street/Reynoldsburg exit. Go east on Main Street to Brice Road and turn right. Take Brice Road to Livingston Avenue and turn left. Entrance is about 1.5 miles on the right.
