We visit oak openings regularly for family bike rides. The trails are well marked and varied. There is also a really long trail where the railroad used to travel..now a nicely paved throughway. We prefer traveling through the treed areas and around the lake. Nice in summer, beautiful in the fall. Not only a "must see" but a "must experience"... More

Many hiking trails, lakes, and a big forest with several habitats available to wander in or ride your bike through. There are also separate bridal paths. You can rent a few overnight places or a shelter for parties. Lots of wildlife to view. Photo ops abound. Signage along in several areas tell you about this region.

Oak opening is a great place for a picnic,a walk in the park or just sit and relax. There are play grounds for the kids. A lake to watch the ducks and many trails to enjoy.

This park is filled with trails varying in length from one mile to a 17 mile one, and even a piece of the North Country National Scenic Trail. I have been often and always enjoy the natural beauty.

I love to get outdoors and hike but unfortunately there isn't a lot of that in northwest Ohio, so this is about as good as it gets for the area. With about 30 miles of hiking and biking, you'll be able to keep yourself occupied for several trips. The trails are well maintained and not strenuous at all so it's... More

A preserve in the truest form of the word. Park access melds well with the natural environment. Accessible. Heavy wetlands probably harken back to the days of the "Black Swamp". Great for birds and nature watching.

I'm normally rollerblading through on the wabash cannonball trail, but have also been running on some of the trails. The trails aren't all as clearly marked as they could be, but the area isn't big enough to get lost for too long!

The oak openings metropark is a beautiful park with miles of trails. The main area has a visitor center on mallard lake with several trail heads for walks to dunes and through the forest. A paved/stone bike path makes a loop of three miles and connects with the wabash trail where you can go east or west for many more... More
