Attraction details
Owner description: Founded in 1973, Gahanna Woods State Nature Preserve is a successful effort to save one of the last remaining large stands of woods in central Ohio. The preserve is both a nature lover and bird watcher’s dream, with rare species of vegetation, including some of Ohio’s most exceptional wildflowers, and rarely-seen wildlife. Consisting of more than 50 acres, the preserve offers plenty of scenic hiking trails and areas for picnicking.

I visited Gahanna Woods Nature Preserve for the first time today. On a Saturday morning I saw 1 person with the exception of my running partner. The preserve is a pleasant, quiet running location with very nice trails padded with wood chips, grass, boardwalks, or rubberized tiles depending on the section. Foliage is maintained almost as a tunnel along the trail, which somehow adds to the experience. I'll go back to this convenient location.

I have found that all the parks and nature preserves in and around Columbus are great. The weather was great to enjoy all outdoor activities while we were there

There are two parks here... Gahanna Woods & a state nature preserve. We live nearby, & go there to walk or run frequently. Because of the shade the trails here are really a great place to log a few miles on a hot day. The paths work their way back & around between the two parks & make it easy to take a relaxing walk/run. Don't be surprised if you see a deer or lots of other woodsy animals.
