Highbanks Metro Park

1,159-acre park about 17 miles north of Columbus. Named after its massive 100-foot-high shale bluff which towers over the Olentangy River, Highbanks Metro Park offers lots of beautiful scenery, nature, and wildlife. The nature center more towards the entrance of the park is said to have lots of cool information on fossils in the area.

Much of the park is closed off for conservation, but there are several miles of trails in the northern section of the park that are for recreational use. The most appropriate for running are the 2.3 mile Multi-Use Trail, or the 3.5 mile Coyote Run. One can run up to ~9 miles at Highbanks without touching a trail twice!
