Oct. 7, 2016, very interesting part of Ohio history. The museum was very good preparation for your hike in the woods, because without some idea of what the pits would look like , you might think it was a mine field. After many,many centuries of rains ,rotting trees, leaves,and mining the pits are left as just deep pockmarks in the... More

I think the trails are nice but there isnt much to see other than nature. The park seems well taken care of except by the pond where there is a lot of littering. My husband and I enjoy taking trips here to get away from the busy city. We search for arrow heads but haven't found any. I wish the... More

We have been trying to take in as many nature walks and wineries as we can. This was next on our list of nature walks and it was very nice. The actual flint (quarries(?) are not much to look at - just deep holes. The walk was nice and we were treated to some kind of gathering of people and... More

Visited this park after seeing the Newark Earthworks (about 20-30 minutes drive away) and enjoyed the hiking paths and Hopewell history. There are little flint quarries throughout the park. The paths can be muddy and steep in some areas, so wear appropriate shoes.

The Indians used to dig for flint for their arrows and tools here. The settlers used the flint for their millstones, etc. There is a nice little museum on the property and your can walk thru the woods and view the holes that the Indians and settlers dug in. There was a knapping(arrow makers) event going on there Memorial Day... More

Stopped by this park on our way through. Nothing was open, but we enjoyed a nice hike around the park before continuing on our way. Made for a nice way.

I went to a flint knapper's convention at this Park the first of September, and also visited the museum and hiked some of the trails. There is not much to see on the trails, because all the pits that the Native American's used have filled in with soil, leaves, and water over the centuries. It would help tell the story... More
