I love to go out and walk at Dawes. It is a beautiful setting and very peaceful. The security is always driving around the grounds and available for questions.

We brought 3 dogs and left with over 20 ticks. All of our dogs are treated but even found some in my wife’s hair. Be careful

Wide open spaces with lots of trails. Trees are labeled, with many trees from other countries and continents. Could spend a whole day there!

What a wonderful place to get away! The views are fantastic, and if you like to hike there are miles and miles and miles of paved and well-maintained natural trails. If you are in Central Ohio, this is a must-see.
