Ohio Birding Day Hike

Norma Johnson Center Trails
There are three trails at the Norma Johnson Center.
Conservation Loop Trail – 1.23 miles
Preservation Loop Trail – 1.23 miles
Johnson Loop Trail – 1.31 miles

Local bird enthusiasts enjoy the Norma Johnson Center for the different types of birds that they can see during a hike, The upper ridge trail on the Conservation Loop offers birders glimpses of warblers and other woodland creatures. The bird sightings on the Preservation Trail can be bluebirds, field sparrows, tree and barn swallows. The Johnson Loop is a popular place for those birders who want to get away from the main trails and enjoy birds who are attracted to woodland and open meadow habitats.

Located on the south side of OH-39 the Johnson Loop Trail is a hidden treasure. The parking area is accessed by turning south onto Gasser Road and parking at the trailhead entrance. The trail may also be accessed from a small parking area on Hidden Hollow Lane. The Johnson Loop offers visitors two ponds, open fields, and some wooded sections. Norma’s favorite place on the entire Norma Johnson Center property was on top of the Johnson Loop near the gas wells.
