Ohio: Edge of Appalachia Preserve
The Edge of Appalachia Preserve could be considered the crown jewel of Adams County's parks. The 13,500-acre sanctuary, run by the Nature Conservancy and the Cincinnati Museum Center, offers three hiking trails, including Buzzardroost Rock, but most of The Edge lies untouched. Roughly 1,200 plant species grow here, many rare or endangered. Like Adams County itself, the preserve feels blessedly undiscovered -- it rewards explorers more than tourists.
