Trails, Fishing and Rivers | Mohican State Park
This weekend we traveled to Mochican State park.
Thousands of wooded acres greet visitors to the Mohican region. Mohican State Park’s wild landscape offers truly stunning views from both land and water. Clear Fork Gorge, Lyon’s Falls, and the Mohican State Scenic River are just a few of the must-sees for adventurers. Overnight accommodations include a modern full-service lodge, large family campground with pool, deluxe vacation cabins, and a primitive camping area with stream-side sites.
Several hiking trails traverse the park.
- Clear Fork Gorge Loop Trail 0.5 mile- moderate
- Grist Mill Overlook Loop Trail – 0.7 mile
- Hemlock Gorge Trail – 2 miles – difficult – Leads to a scenic covered bridge
- Hog Hollow Trail – 2.5 miles
- Lyons Fall Trail – 2 miles – moderate to difficult – follows Clear Fork Gorge and features two waterfalls
- North Rim Trail – 1 mile
- Pleasant Hill Trail – 3/4 mile – easy – Follows the lake shoreline and offers beautiful views of the lake
- Stage Coach Trail (cut off on Lyons Falls) – 0.2 mile
- Shelter House Trail – 0.33 mile
Named “Trail of the Month” by Runners World Magazine, Mohican State Park is the home to one of the oldest ultra marathons in the U.S., The Mohican Trail 100, and also hosted the first ever US Track and Field Ultra Marathon National Championship in 2005.
Hikers are also permitted on the bridle trails and the mountain biking trails. Please be courteous to other trail users and give right-of-way to riders while hiking on their trails.
We plan on going back in October for a weekend staying at the Landoll’s Mohican Castle, deep in the heartland of Mohican country and Loudonville, Ohio
