The Hidden Park In Ohio, Wahkeena Nature Preserve, Is An Outdoor Lover’s Paradise
It’s easy to fall in love with nature when you live in the Buckeye State. You could live here your whole life and still not explore all the state parks, nature preserves and metro parks that Ohio has to offer. Tucked away on the edge of Ohio’s scenic Hocking Hills, you’ll find Wahkeena Nature Preserve in Sugar Grove. It’s a little-known park Ohio explorers will fall in love with—and it’s worthy of your outdoor bucket list.
