Blendon Woods Metro Park
Are you craving a trip to a national park? If you said yes, I am with you. I am an avid traveler and for the last few years, I had many great adventures at a lot of our national parks. I love hiking on different trials and seeing all varieties of terrain. When Covid hit and long-distance travel was no longer an option, I started to explore what parks the Columbus area had to offer. Now it feels like I am traveling again and it helps me discover all the hidden treasure around me. Today I want to share with you one of my favorite parks: Blendon Woods metro park.
Blendon Woods is located on the east side of Columbus, about 10min drive from Easton. You can find many playgrounds for kids, picnic areas for families, miles of shaded easy walking trails and designated trails for your furry friends. Surrounded by tall trees and the sounds of a babbling stream it feels like an escape from the stress of the new normal. If you are lucky, you may even run into several wild turkeys roaming around the woods. Don’t forget to check out the observation shelters near Thoreau Pond, it is the best spot to watch waterfowl.
Not being able to travel can be hard, but this metro park would be a perfect alternative to reconnect with nature. Put on your sneakers and grab a bottle of water because your new adventure awaits at Blendon Woods metro park!
