Home to the REI River Trail, Scioto Grove Metro Park is a 620-acre park along the Scioto River with mature forests and scenic bluffs overlooking the river. It features three miles of trails, two picnic areas with shelters, tables and grills, a kids play area and several overlook decks. With about 4 miles of river frontage, the park is a great destination for canoeists, kayakers, anglers and people wanting to see waterfowl and other wildlife. Dogs on leashes are welcome throughout the park.
The park is a partnership with Grove City, which donated 193 acres of land, and outdoor retailer REI, which helped to fund the building of a backpack trail along the river with five campsites. The REI River Trail is a great place for those just getting into the sport, as well as those seasoned backpackers who want a quick overnight without having to journey several hours.
