Buckeye's Hike of the Month - Great Seal State Park

  • Great Seal State Park

    North 38, Chillicothe, OH (map)

    39.400066 -82.943306

  • You asked for it, you got it...the north loop of Great Seal including SUGARLOAF!


    Great Seal State Park is dedicated to the wilderness spirit of Ohio.  The history of the Shawnee nation and Ohio's early statehood is centered in these rugged hills.  Challenging trails through the 1,862-acre park take visitors to scenic vistas of distant ridgetops and the Scioto Valley below.  These very hills are depicted on the Great Seal of the State of Ohio, from which the park gets its name.  We will tackle several of Great Seal's hills on this eight to ten mile hike including the iconic Sugarloaf!

    Bring water, snacks, beer, schnapps...whatever you will need to get you through!  

    Meet at REI at Rookwood Commons between 7:00 and 7:15 a.m.  We will be leaving at 7:15 so do not be late!  It will take about two hours to reach the trail head parking lot (directions from REI to trail head HERE).

    Post hike will be at Dock at Water in Chillicothe.  Directions from Great Seal to Dock are HERE.
