    Hike Glen Helen Nature Preserve

    by WheninRome Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Glen Helen Nature Preserve is located just outside of Yellow Springs and is a beautiful place to spend a day of hiking. A beautiful stream runs through the property, which is over 1,000 acres and has several miles of trails, some of which are in better shape than others, but all afford great views of the beauty of this valley. There are several notable areas within the Glen, including the spring that is the namesake of the town of "Yellow Springs" a couple monuments, a monument to Horace Mann (father of public education I believe) and a covered bridge.

    The Glen Helen Association offers numerous activities including guided hikes, outdoor education and birdwatching. The trailside museum is also interesting and worth checking out.

    Yellow Springs is definitely the place to go! The murals on every corner of the streets are spectacular! There are fine artists donating their time and talent to beautify the city by painting murals on every back of the building. Every old raggety building have a facelift! Just keep walking and enjoy the murals!
