Enchanted Walk

Walking Chestnut Ridge Metro Park shares the enchanted delights of one of central Ohio’s most precious gems.

Discovering these woods

Longing for morning walk

Sharing nature’s promise

Enchanted forest talks


Breathing nature’s freshness

Winding through woodland’s peace

Fascinating venture

Enchanted, sweet showpiece


Scaling every hill

Navigating each trail

Finding nature’s secrets

Enchanted story’s tale


Standing still, time shall wait

Looking around each bend

Treasuring nature’s prize

Enchanted spirit’s friend


Dreaming of tomorrow

Hiking this ridge again

Searching for nature’s gifts

Enchanted walk, Amen!
