Spending one day at Clifton Gorge Nature Preserve near Yellow Springs, Ohio is a bucket-list-worthy idea! Discover a covered bridge, scenic trails, a vintage mill, a casual American restaurant, and a 1940s-era gas station. The nature preserve is many Ohioans’ favorite hiking location. Don’t forget to leave behind pets when hiking this preserve. However, it is okay to bring your pets to nearby John Bryan State Park and Glen Helen Preserve.
The Clifton Mill restaurant is famous for its large, plate-size pancakes.
I’ve also heard it’s amazing during the holidays, as they go all out with the lights and decorations. The Legendary Lights of Clifton Mill is one of USA TODAY’S 10 Best Readers’ Choice Travel Award winners.
