    First, is in the middle of nowhere and is a two-hour drive from north Columbus. You have to love long hikes to do this trail. I was surprised that there were a few other cars parked at the trailhead. The scenery on this hike is basically non-existent -just forest for the most part. Outside of the 15-mile distance, I don’t remember any challenges regarding elevation gain; it’s fairly flat and well marked. There were a few spots early in the hike in which the trail was in very poor condition, but the last 12 miles or so I had no problems.
