Warren County, Ohio
Steep Walls, Diverse Habitats, Varied Plants and Wildlife
The forested gorge was formed by great volumes of glacial meltwater cutting down through the bedrock about 20,000 years ago. Steep walls rise to about 180 feet above the pristine creek that flows through the gorge. A 2¼-mile trail system is available for wildlife viewing.
Protected by Ohio Department of Natural Resources
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources purchased the land in the early 1970s. The Division of Parks and Recreation conserves and manages the preserve.
