Hike the Gorge Trail Loop

Ohio West Gorge Trail

Added by

A scenic 2 mile loop around Mill Creek which includes the Lanternman's Mill.

This is a lovely 2 mile hike along Mill Creek. We parked by Lake Newport and started off on the West Gorge Trail toward the Mill. The trail itself was decent, with some rough spots, but still hike able. Make sure you go down to the Creek before you head across the covered bridge to the East Gorge Trail.

The East Gorge Trail has boardwalks and steps that let you easily hike what would be a rather challenging hike with steep cliffs and rocky terrain. The boardwalk leads you down to the creek bed and winds through the gorge.

All in all, this is truly a hidden gem sitting in the middle of Youngstown. Definitely worth bringing the whole family for a great time out in the woods.

I am a father, photographer, and explorer of all things interesting. I'm constantly struggling with the urge to fall off the grid and go into the wild.

Hike to the Elusive Corkscrew Falls

Ohio / Route 664 and Zwinkle Rd

I like to describe this waterfall as the "elusive" corkscrew falls. A couple years ago, only one or two people had blogged on the internet about these falls.

Hike the Pew Island Trail, Indian Lake

Ohio / Pew Island Trailhead

I hiked this trail on a very cold, blustery day. A winter storm was blowing in across the ice and temperatures were downright frigid.
