Clear Creek Metro ParkClear Creek Metro Park (Columbus Ohio Metro Park) offers over 5200 acres of woodland interspersed with cliffs, ravines, rock formations and creeks. There are four main picnic areas, fishing and hiking.

Centuries of glacial flooding have cut the valley through the Blackhand sandstone. Oak and hickory forests intermingle with giant hemlocks and ferns along with the last remaining Ohio colonies of rhododendron providing a wonderful place to hike and bird watch.
