I love hiking in Glen Helen. They have changed hands in the last year and the biggest plus is the addition of intersection #s on the trail. Download the new map and you will know exactly where you are.

The Glen Helen Nature Preserve is just across the street from Yellow Springs downtown. Great trees and trails. Some of the trails can be closed for repair. Check ahead.

This was the first time we visited Yellow Springs and after reading Trip Advisors reviews we decided to hike Glen Helen Preserve...We did the inside loop that was 1.6 miles but felt a lot longer due to the steep hills...It was a beautiful walk through the woods with pretty views of water streams and water falls...Just one word of caution before you start down the path... it is very steep and very hard to get back up...I would highly recommend this trail!!!

There was such a wide variety of flora and terrain here. We loved the waterfall and swampy areas especially. The main trails are one-way only with masks required. Smart due to the large volume of people there. Costs $ to park, but it's worth it to support the park.

This is a great place to hike - the Yellow Spring is absolutely beautifuI. I recommend using the public bathroom at the Yellow Springs Station on Railroad Street as the restrooms here are closed due to COVID-19. Parking here is $5.00. I stayed at the Arthur Morgan House Bed and Breakfast which is very close to here. I walked down the bike path after my hike so that I could explore the Womens' Park and Antioch College.
