This park offers 2 mountain biking trails and separate hiking trail. This review is for Hiking. I found this to be a great for a workout or a stroll depending on direction. If you go right, its a march to the top of the hill, If you go left, its a bit easier of a start. Great view of downtown Columbus Ohio in the fall, winter and spring but thick vegetation spoils the summer view. Trail is mostly unimproved or rock. Dont miss the albino squirrels or friendly deer.

Very Happy with this trail. This is one of the less traveled trials at mohican. I hiked it on a very busy day and only saw 3 people on the trial. The trail was very well marked and was well groomed. The trail head is just south of the covered bridge and offers a few nice bridges to cross the creek.

Grandma Gatewood Trail - Old Man's Cave to Ash Cave

I did what I would guess is the traditional route; Old Man's Cave (OMC) Gorge to Cedar Falls to Ash Cave via the Buckeye Trail (BT), return on the BT to Cedar Falls to Gorge Overlook Trail to Old Man's cave. I started at 10:30 am and there were moderate crowds in the gorge. The crowds thinned as a moved a way from OMC and I had brief periods where I was walking alone. No more than 20 minutes until I passed Cedar Falls. I liked the BT from Cedar Falls to Ash Cave probable the best because I was alone most of the time. I made a mistake and did not pack enough water. The 2 liters I had I went through mid-way. I had thought that there would be water at either Cedar Falls or Ash Cave. No dice. The hand pump at Ash Cave was dry and the water fountain at Cedar Falls was out of order.

Very nice hike. 8 miles, not 7.4. Still a bit muddy in places after 5 days of no rain. More sunshine and thus hotter overall on west side of trail. If starting early from boat ramp, go clockwise to stay cooler. Only saw one other hiking party entire day. Crossing at north end--bridge has been replaced by sandbar hopping and was fine but creek was running normal. Unsure how crossing would be with high water. No snakes seen. Few bugs in morning.

Took on the backpacking trail. it is a good hike. They bulldozed the trail though. Had to get to the trees, But really, the trail? Made it a rough hike in many spots as now the trail is loose dirt 10 feet wide, not a nice pretty well worn trail to enjoy. It will be a few years before the trail get back to the way it was is my guess.
