Alexander's Tree Trek

Owlexander's Tree Trek


Explore the Tree Trek nature literature trail. There are more than 100 tree species native to Ohio and this trail educates the hiker about 14 species and includes information about the tree’s family name, leaf shape, bark appearance, commercial use, and, in some cases, interesting folklore. This trail is primarily aimed at middle schoolers, but is a fun and free activity for the entire family!
