French Creek Reservation Hike

French Creek Reservation Hike
Leader: David

Kick cabin fever in the butt with a hike through the French Creek Reservation in Lorain County. This will be our first trek to this park in many years. Although we can walk more than four miles on the park trails, the distance will be determined by weather and group consensus.

The French Creek Reservation features 450 acres of mostly wooded landscape with high cliffs, deep ravines and three creeks-Sugar Creek, Fish Creek, and the reservation’s namesake, the French Creek. With 4-1/2 miles of the most forested trails in Lorain County, you’re not likely to run out of walking room. The French Creek Nature Center offers a variety of programs and exhibits, a nature space/indoor playground and wildlife observatory, and houses the French Creek Theatre.

As with most parks in Lorain County, the trails are mainly flat. Boots are advised for mud/ice. Dogs are welcome.

Meet at-
Nature & Arts Center
4530 Colorado Avenue
Sheffield Village, Ohio 44054

If you use only French Creek Reservation for GPS directions you may be directed to the Pine Tree Picnic area. Be sure to use the address above.

After the hike we can grab a bite and/or check out The Backpackers Shop nearby.
