Hiking and Walking

Sometimes the best way to explore the watershed is by walking through it. If you venture into our local parks, you’ll discover steep-banked ravines and shale outcroppings, Adena Indian Mounds and historic cemeteries. During the spring, spectacular wildflowers bloom, and during the fall the woodlands explode into yellows, oranges, and reds. It’s all there waiting to be found.

If you want to adventure with us, check FLOW’s calendar for upcoming events!

The path supports a wide range of recreational opportunities along the river, all while offering the chance to enjoy fresh air and exercise in a unique, natural setting.
