Description: Meet at the Affelder House to join a naturalist on and off-trail hike in a mature woodland to enjoy views along Affelder Stream and Silver Creek. Explore a newly acquired Park property with an opportunity to see one of the biggest tulip trees in the state of Ohio. Hiking will include muddy, wet woodlands with some steep slopes. Hikers must be physically capable of several miles of strenuous on and off-trail hiking. This property runs south of the Affelder trail along Silver Creek with several stream crossings and about a half hour of on-trail hiking before heading backcountry. Registration required.
