The Ancient Forest Near Cleveland That’s Right Out Of A Storybook

When we are talking about one of Northeast Ohio’s oldest forests, “ancient,” “pre-modern,” and “super-duper old” are all appropriate adjectives, and this one tucked away in the gorgeous North Chagrin Reservation has remained untouched for hundreds of years. Its landscape allows locals the opportunity to witness Ohio’s amazing landscape as it is meant to be seen.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

This pretty forest has roots that span hundreds of years, complete with trees that predate the founding of our country. Its wooded expanse offers a glimpse into what Ohio once looked like long before we left our mark on its dreamy landscape.

Oh, and while you’re in the reservation, be sure to check out the ruins of an old castle.
