Dodge Woods, Scheef East Point Nature Preserve, and Massie Cliffside Preserve offer the sort of relaxing outing which lifts one above the negatives in the daily grind. Better than alcohol , ice cream, or even a heaping bowl of lobster bisque, nature walks on South Bass Island provide the answer to Ishmael’s “damp, drizzly November in my soul” (Moby Dick, Chapter 1).
Scheef East Point Preserve combines a peaceful combination of inland flora and wildlife with the dynamic presence of Lake Erie shoreline.
Massie Cliffside trail winds through a serene island forest and opens up to a marvelous field with benches and outstanding view of Put-in-Bay.
These spectacular places come through the efforts of Lake Erie Islands Conservancy and the Put-in-Bay Park District.
Do yourself a favor and partake of a rewarding hike at Put-in-Bay!
