About Boord State Nature Preserve
+ Hemlock ravine
+ Sandstone gorge
+ .75 mile trail
+ Overlook at the falls
+ Small parking lot

The Boord State Nature Preserve contains one of the best examples of a hemlock ravine in Washington County and the surrounding area. The preserve’s state-listed species include rock skullcap, narrow-leaved toothwort, and golden-knees.

Falls Run cuts through a massive layer of Permian-age sandstone to form the heart of this preserve which is an eastern hemlock-shrouded stream gorge 60-80 feet deep. Numerous scenic cliffs and overhangs occur along this ravine.

The preserve honors the Boord family of Dayton, Ohio, who made a partial gift of this preserve to the division in 1986.

Located 4.5 miles east of Bartlett, follow OH-550 to County Road 6. Proceed .75 mile south on County Road 6 to Township Road 69. The signed preserve is .5 mile west on Township Road 69.
