“A place to revisit again and again.”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Wonderful, tranquil place to hike. Visiting more than once is a must since the beauty changes with the seasons. This is one of several fantastic hiking places in the cool Yellow Springs area. Great for everyone, you won't be disappointed.

“Glen Helen”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Home to the Springs which give the village it's name, the Glen Helen Nature Preserve and it's excellent small Trailside Museum is well worth a couple of hours during any visit to Yellow Springs. The trails are well maintained and clearly marked.an An excellent map is available for sale at the Museum, which is located just off the public parking area at the Corry Street entrance to the Glen.

For nature lovers. Wonderful forest with various hikes. Wildflowers, animals, the spring and friendly people. Don't forget to stop in Yellow Springs downtown for food and shopping.

“quite walk in nature”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

The Glen is a magical place - a green space that brings peace to your mind as you wonder its trails. This 1000 acre nature preserve in Yellow Springs, Ohio, is adjacent to John Bryan State Park, so you can literally walk for miles and miles! Be sure to visit the trailside museum.

“A nice nature park”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

This park has several nature trails but the trail map was difficult to navigate. For one thing, the trail map was too small and forks in the trails are not marked. This was our first trip and we were lucky to run into another couple who were more familiar with the trails and showed us the way back to the main parking area. Parking is $2.00 per day. The main building is fairly new and very nice.
