This Lesser-Known Midwest State Park Is Great For Adventurous Travelers
Ohio is an oasis of fun for adventure lovers, and those who take time during their Ohio getaway to explore Mohican State Park are in for some big thrills.
Mohican State Park in Loudonville, Ohio, sits within the lush Mohican-Memorial State Forest. The Mohican State Scenic River runs through the park, which spans around 1,100 acres.
There's no cost to visit the park and no parking fee to plan for either. It is a great place to enjoy canoeing and kayaking, and you can even go on guided Mohican River trips.
Lyons Falls is made up of two waterfalls — Big Lyons Falls tumbles 80 feet over a small cave, while Little Lyons Falls showcases a 25-foot drop through the gorge.
Mohican State Park also features a 25-mile bike trail and an 80-foot fire tower. The latter offers gorgeous views if you're courageous enough to climb to the top.
If you love animals, consider adding horseback riding to your itinerary. There are also options for a winter adventure, as Mohican State Park is a popular place to go snowmobiling.
