#5 Rocky Fork Off Leash Dog Trail Rocky Fork Metro Park Feb 7: 0.5 hours, 0.6 mile, loop Difficulty: 1 2 3 4 5 Interest: 1 2 3 4 5 Surface: Gravel and dirt
Even though it’s short, this is my favorite trail in Columbus. It’s officially sanctioned off leash legal! And even so, I rarely see other dogs. More often if there are others they go to the fenced in dog park the trail starts from. It’s a very short loop through some forest, but there’s a spot to go out to some wetland with a little pond.
