4 mile multi-purpose, paved trail. Quite a few other walking trails, picnic areas, reservable shelters, Schrock Lake. What's not to like? Good place to mingle with an international crowd. Of course, that is what is great about Columbus, many different people all getting along.

Our friends live nearby to Sharon Woods and we had the opportunity to hike the trail system one day and bike it later in the week. Beautiful wooded trails made exercise fun even in the heat of summer! Not too crowded and the pond is fun to look at the birdlife!

This park has some very nice walking trails and also has a nice pond. The picnic areas are also top notch. I wish it was closer to my house, I would go there more often.

Long paths that are graveled, benches and trash cans available along the paths. Signage telling you what plants and animals are common in the area. Play grounds, picnic areas with and without shelters, grills, large areas to play ball, a gorgeous lake. I only experienced the paths at the very end of the park. To experience this park one would...

This park, along with all the other metro parks in Columbus is a great location to enjoy nature in the city. This system of parks is well taken care of and you will find a variety of activities throughout the year.
