We will hike Batelle-Darby.  We'll start at the Cedar Ridge area, meeting by the Ranger Station.  We'll hike south along Big Darby Creek, hit the Ancient Trail loop and then do the Terrace Trail loop, and make our way back to Cedar Ridge.  Overall, about 6 miles of hiking. 

This is a fitness hike, so we keep moving at a good speed (approaching 4 miles per hour).

For those who like written directions: From I-270, take the West Broad Street (U.S. 40) exit west. Go about 5 miles on Broad Street and turn left on Darby Creek Drive. Main entrance is about 3 miles on the right.

    We got really lucky with weather (50 degrees in a week that has highs in the 30). Thanks Dave for being the official cameraman :). The hike was split in two three groups due to the different paces (fast and slower) ... also in the future I will update the description of the hike to note that there maybe a mud and ice on the paths (and lots of it like in this hike).

    It was a great hike but this kind of meetup should be followed by a dinner at a nearby restaurant as I suppose everyone was hungry after that.

      Sam thanks for the comment. Please feel free to suggest something during the meetup and help set it up. I am usually not going to restaurants afterwords.

    Stelios - Great job setting up another Saturday hike. Although the trails were a bit muddy, the sun was out and the company was great as usual

      I'm sorry but I already left.. I looked at the website right before I left but did not see any replies to my comment so I did not think any one was interested this time.

    As I recall, there are two entrances to the park. Which one is closest to the Ranger Station? Or, to put it another way, is the Cedar Ridge parking lot to the North or South?

    Hi Stelios, I didn't realize you posted a hike for Saturday so I cancelled my Highbanks hike and am attending yours ... sorry about that

    February 28, 2014

    • Stelios

      Char, the more hikes the better it is usually since we have more choices ... anyway, it will be good to see you .. .we may get lucky and it may be a bit worm tomorrow ....

    I'm bringing in a couple extra friends, they're not members of HikeOhio. Is that okay?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
