The Lorain County Metroparks generally has good nature reservations for hiking. Me personally, I am not a fan of hiking. Anyway, the place itself is well-maintained, with the trails being well laid-out and kept clean. Parking is abundant, so finding spots isn't that difficult. Overall,...More

French Creek is a nice park with trails through woods. It also has a visitor center near one entrance, and a play area for kids near the other. It's a good place to go to take a relaxing walk & enjoy nature.

Good long trails with plenty of variety. If you have dogs (or don't) you can get some good long walks in. Good parking and easy to find - we prefer the access off French Creek Road.

We were coming from another local park so we didn't explore the trails here, but we stopped for an hour or so to enjoy the nature center. It was very large with a couple of different stages and a classroom that has really impressive aquariums...More

A large portion of this reservation is devoted to a drama stage and drama program. It lacks the animal exhibits for the size it is. They do have outdoor and indoor nature programs.

Lots to look at, family oriented. LCMP has lots to offer the community and families.
