Connie and I liked to walk along the towpath of the miami and wabash erie trails near Napolean.  The trail is off-road and flat.  One caution, avoid deer season up there.  The nimrods are out in force.

I am under the impression that the Winter Hike is not going on this year.  I was told that the new GM of the park is not letting us get in there at all and clean up the trail and or get it reopened.   There was a massive flood middle of June and a few bridges got damaged along with a big portion of the trail through the Gatewood,  I know the Winter Hike does not follow the Gatewood to Cedar Falls but, I was told that the Winter Hike was off

I would have to say my favorite Hike in the Winter is the Old Mans cave section too, but perferably not during the Winter Hike,  I think its a great Idea and its the largest Public Hike in the entire state all year but I would much rather sit inside Ash Cave by myself,  I havnt been able to catch it fully Iced over yet but It has been pretty close

The Hocking Hills Winter Hike has not been cancelled. Check here the calendar of events here:

The event is too big and brings in too much money to be cancelled.

The northern part of Burr Oak State Park, solitude, nothing but hills, trees, rocks, and streams and the backwaters of Burr Oak Lake/ the East Branch of Sunday Creek.  Beaver lodges, bald eagles and the BT... but don't tell anybody ; ).
