COLUMBUS, Ohio – As the state explodes with the oranges, yellows, and reds of fall, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) is offering guided tours through state parks, nature preserves, and forests.
“The Buckeye State is especially beautiful when the colors of fall are on display,” said Governor Mike DeWine. “I encourage you to gather the family, get outside, and see some of the most scenic views Ohio has to offer this season.”
The hikes vary in terrain and difficulty. Visitors can plan ahead using ODNR’s DETOUR app. The app allows users to search the trails listed for the fall hike series to determine if they are a good fit for their skill level.
“There’s no better way to experience the magic of fall than hiking surrounded by vibrant colors,” ODNR Director Mary Mertz said. “There are so many state parks, forests, and nature preserves waiting to be explored, and there’s no better time to discover your family’s next adventure and make memories that will last a lifetime.”
