Hike with the Foundation for Geauga Parks

Foundation Hiking Club

Swine Creek Reservation

Saturday, March 3rd @ 10:30am


Friends of the Foundation,

Please join us for the latest opportunity to explore the great parks in beautiful Geauga County. Our next hike will take place at Swine Creek Reservation.

From the Geauga Park District website: 

Swine Creek Reservation is a 412-acre park located in the southeast corner of Middlefield Township. Situated in the countryside among Amish farms, the park’s cultural and natural setting make it a very popular destination. The park also offers access to the south section of The Maple Highlands TrailIt is Geauga Park District’s intent to protect this natural area in perpetuity.

Swine Creek Reservation was once part of a 1,200-acre hunting preserve belonging to Windsor Ford of Mesopotamia. In 1977 he sold Geauga Park District 268 acres that contained a sugar bush, a pond and a lodge. Additional acres were added along Swine Creek and the former Baltimore & Ohio Railroad corridor.

Meet in the parking lot by the Wood’s Edge Shelter. We will hike either the Gray Fox Trail or the Valley Trail. 

Well behaved pets and people are welcomed.
