About Ashcroft Woods Conservation Area
Ashcroft Woods Conservation Area is a 379-acre protected property located in Rome Township in Southern Ashtabula County. The Grand River, an Ohio designated Scenic River, flows along the approximately 1.2-mile western property boundary. The property is dominated by approximately 178 acres of high quality wetlands, including 52 acres of open water submergent wetlands, 45 acres of scrub-shrub wetlands, swamp forest, and isolated vernal pools. The majority of these wetlands are located on the eastern three-quarters of the property and drain into the headwaters of Plum Creek, a direct tributary of the Grand River. The upland sections of this forest are largely composed of mature red oak, white oak, sugar maple, American beech, black cherry, and hickory while the floodplain areas adjacent to the river display black walnut, sycamore, black maple and silver maple. The property contains approximately 1.8 miles of trails open to the public between June and mid-September. The park is closed annually from September 16 to May 30.
There is a 5-car parking area available on Johnson Road, about 1.22 miles west of OH-45.
