Indian Hollow Reservation Grafton

Indian Hollow Reservation EntranceAlthough Indian Hollow is actually made up of four separate tracts of land that will one day be linked by trails, Sheldon Woods is the only part presently open to the public. But there's plenty to do right here. Sheldon Woods is made up of 180 acres of mostly wooded land bisected by the eastern branch of the Black River. The facilities are all on the southern side of the river--two picnic shelters, a playground, soccer field and restroom facilities-while the quarries and trails are on the northern side.

Kipton Reservation Camden

Kipton ReservationThis undeveloped reservation once housed the city of Oberlin's water supply and was known as the Kipton Reservoir. The current reservation is now most commonly used for horseback riding along unimproved trails that loop around the old reservoir (the trails were created and are maintained by the Erie and Lorain County chapters of the Ohio Horse Council.) A small gravel parking lot on the west side of Route 511 has recently been added.

Please note that Kipton is a primitive area and there are no facilities. Picnicking is prohibited.
