About French Creek Reservation
The French Creek Reservation features 450 acres of mostly wooded landscape with high cliffs, deep ravines and three creeks-Sugar Creek, Fish Creek, and the reservation’s namesake, the French Creek. With 4.5 miles of the most forested trails in Lorain County, you’re not likely to run out of walking room. The French Creek Nature Center offers a variety of programs and exhibits, a nature space/indoor playground and wildlife observatory, and houses the TrueNorth Cultural Arts.

Four separately marked trails connect the French Creek Nature Center at one side of the park with the Pine Tree Picnic Area at the other side. These trails take you from water’s edge to the tops of ravines, offering spectacular views of the creeks below—from rolling, winding paths to level straight-aways ideal for cross-country skiers. You’ll find a variety of wildflowers, plants and trees, an occasional bridge and several scenic overlooks. Along the way, you can rest at one of the benches placed near the trails or just sit and enjoy the natural beauty, songbirds, and soothing sound of the wind in the trees.
