Great place, beautiful, but so big, spread out. I was not sure where to drive. Could not get to the Sand Dunes without walking a trail; I expected them to be out in open. Bring your mosquito spray ! and your camera.

My husband and I try to get out here annually to hike and photograph the scenery. This park is beautiful and full of diverse landscapes from sand dunes, to forest, to savannah. There are paved trails and natural trails for hiking, walking, bicycling and horseback riding. I do recommend bringing a trail map, as the park is huge!

A huge nature preserve that has something for everyone!. Walking and running trails in various lengths. Biking, and cross country trails too!. Small shelters with a fireplace and picnic tables for family gatherings and picnics, around Mallard Lake. Fishing (license required) on this lake too!. You'll see deer, raccoon, opossum, squirrels, chipmunks, and even an occasional snake. Dogs okay as... More

This is a island of natural beauty in an otherwise urban environment. There are nature walks, playground, bike paths and beauty all around. The staff is helpful and conducts educational classes. Be alert and you may see a deer.

This park is large, it has lots of hiking trails, some equine trails, and a pond. You should be able to find some type of outdoor activity to do here.

The Toledo area hosts multlple metro-parks and Oak Openings is one of the best. Oak Oepenings region is known for diversity of plants, but it also has a sand dune area. It is great for bike riding. Your bike ride can be extended several miles by hopping on the Wabash Cannonball bike trail. I also enjoy the lake and hiking... More

This is the most expansive park in the Toledo, Ohio area hands down. There is roughly 15 miles of hiking trails available along with biking trails as well. Great for day hikes or camping as there is onsite camp sites available for a small fee. Many folks bring their dogs for a nice day walk or kayak/canoe or just to... More

This is a go to spot for my family and I. We enjoy the Wabash trail for biking and roller blading or we head to trails in Oak Openings for a short hike. Lots of trails to pick from. You could hike all day here if you wanted to.
