About Seymour Woods State Natural Area
+ Spring woodland wildflowers
+ Oak-hickory woodland
+ Parking outside the gate
+ Trail system
Seymour Woods contains deep ravines cut into steep shale cliffs, heavily wooded ridge tops and open fields in various stages of succession. Oak-hickory associations dominate the upper portions but give way to sycamore, elm, maple and willow in the valley lowlands.
Many woodland wildflower species, such as harbinger-of-spring, trillium, bloodroot, and spring beauties, launch the year’s floral display, while in the open fields goldenrods, ironweed, and asters close out the season.
The preserve was a gift to the Division of Natural Areas and Preserves from Columbus attorney, James O. Seymour in 1972.
Located in Delaware County, north of Columbus on US-23 about 8 miles north of I-270; proceed west on Winter Road; the preserve is located .75 mile on the right. Park outside the gate and walk to the trails.
