Hike the trails and see an impressive geologic fault that vertically displaced the earth 30 feet, exposing cliffs formed of bedrock that are over 400 million years old. See a cave, diverse plant life, spring wildflowers and fall colors.

This 88-acre nature preserve, set in an area of exceptional scenic beauty, features the rare rock plant Sullivantia, a remnant of preglacial times. Other interesting plants include arborvitae, great cane, hoary puccoon and purple cliffbrake fern. Average visit time: Allow 1+ hours

Davis Memorial Nature Preserve is managed locally by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.
