I live and work closer to Highbanks Metro Park than any other Metro Park.  Highbanks was probably the first Metro Park I ever visited in Central Ohio. I remember an office party / meeting event  at Highbanks Metro Park in the early 90's.  I remember cross country skiing with a friend in 1992 or 1993 at Highbanks Metro Park. I've gone to a number of organized dog hikes (howl at the moon!) and my dog Buddy and I have gone hiking on the doggie approved hiking path at Highbanks a number of times. I had seen the river, I remembered there is a sledding hill if there is ever snow....in Central Ohio.  I guess there is always a sledding hill at Highbanks whether or not there is snow.

Last fall while at another Metro Park reading about Highbanks Metro park and what it has to offer I realized I had never seen the "highbanks."  Other than the dog park which is mostly on paths along level meadows on the north edge of the park (often within sight of Powell Rd.)I thought of Highbanks as a picnic grounds or a place to walk the dog. I had always missed the main event, the nature trails along the ravines and high rocky banks.  I don't know that I had ever even walked in the woods at Highbanks although if I had surely I would have kept walking to see the ravines, banks, streams. etc.

So finally last fall we spent a couple of afternoons hiking at Highbanks Metro Park in the woods for the firstravine at Highbanks Metro Park time.  We went back early winter... we did not visit in the dead of winte.  Maybe we will this winter. I don't have cross country skis anymore. We went back to Highbanks Metro Park in early spring when the only green was moss... the grass was not yet green. We went back in the spring and summer. We've been back when the water in the streams was very low.  We've been back when the water was higher.

The leaves will changing again soon.
