The yellow-blazed Burr Oak Backpack Trail in Athens and Morgan counties winds along the shore of the 664-acre Burr Oak Reservoir. The 29-mile loop is designed to accommodate both novice and experienced hikers. Access sites along the trail allow day hikers to walk a range of distances. Primitive camping is provided along with drinking water, fire rings and pit latrines. Sights include impressive rock outcroppings and a beautiful variety of wildflowers such as Dutchman's breeches, trillium, rare orchids, bloodroot and hepatica.
The long-distance blue-blazed Buckeye Trail that encircles the state can be accessed off County Road 15, which is located midway between Glouster and the park entrance.
Directions: From Glouster, OH, Take State Route 78 north several miles to park entrance. Park office provides trail maps.
