I’d actually planned on doing the Zaleski South loop again , and decided to pull in here and check it out. 12 miles of trails total. I happened to walk the flat low portions. They were pretty muddy. as most are after all the rain we’ve had. I fished along the banks and didn’t see or catch any. They do stock trout, which have probably died off by now.

Creek view. Future Kayak route.

You’ll walk through a few meadows on the creak side path. A flower blooming.

Small saplings along the path. There is also a lot of what I call “Ohio Bamboo”. I have no Idea what it is.

Roots seeking moisture on a cliff.

Butterflies mating? I scared off most of them taking the picture.

The “Ohio Bamboo” is horsetail, genus Equisetum. I think what is at Clear Creek is “smooth horsetail”, Equisetum laevigatum, but don’t quote me on that.
