About Clear Creek Metro Park
From I-270, take US-33 east toward Lancaster. Go south past Carroll and stay on the bypass. Pass the stoplight at Sugar Grove and go about one mile to Clear Creek Road (CR-116). Turn right on Clear Creek Road (Sunoco Gas Station on the corner). Picnic areas, facilities, and trails are located along Clear Creek Road for the next seven miles.

Clear Creek Valley is one of the most pristine and secluded natural areas in Central Ohio. Variations of land surfaces, soils and climates have produced a medley of habitats that harbor more than 800 plant species and 150 species of birds, many of them rare.

You may catch a glimpse of turkey, deer, ruffed grouse, coyote, black vultures, or even see the traces of the elusive bobcat along the park’s 12 miles of trails.

Centuries of glacial flooding have cut the valley through the Black Hand sandstone leaving an array of scenic cliffs and rugged rock formations overlooking the creek.

Oak and hickory forests interspersed with giant hemlocks and ferns, along with the last remaining Ohio colonies of rhododendron, provide the perfect backdrop or a getaway from city life.
