You’ve Never Experienced Anything Like This Epic Abandoned Railroad Hike In Ohio

There’s something magical about stumbling upon a railroad from years past in the middle of a forest—and that’s exactly what you can experience along one beautiful hiking trail in Ohio.

It starts at the bottom of the hill on Observatory Avenue, which is on the left side of the street as you’re entering the park.
