The Ancient Forest In Ohio That’s Right Out Of A Storybook

Here in Ohio, our old growth forests are slowly (and sadly) disappearing.

Fortunately, however, one of the state’s largest old growth forests is well-preserved—and many of the trees are more than 400-years-old. Johnson Woods State Nature Preserve in Marshallville, Ohio is a hidden gem only the most ambitious Ohio explorers know about. It’s peaceful, beautiful, and a must-see for anyone who enjoys basking in the wonder of nature. Take a look:

Johnson Woods State Nature Preserve is located at 13240 Fox Lake Rd., Marshallville, OH 44645. Have you ever explored this forest before? If so, share your photos and experiences with us!
