Park #6: 4/2/2021

Answer: Blue Rock State Forest – Blue Rock Fire Tower



This beautiful spot was a quick down and back trip out of pure boredom. Lets take a drive! Only a little over an hour from Columbus, Blue Rock State Forest takes you into the hills just south of Zanesville. This was the first fire tower we visited and also the tallest. Standing at 100ft, it’s the last fire tower in Ohio of its size. Although fire towers are no longer in use, many of them are still around for guests to experience at their own risk. This day I reluctantly agreed to climb to the top (if you read my previous blogs I do not do good with heights). It was worth it! The views from the top as you can see are incredible. Although I was on the verge of a panic attack I would do it again in a heartbeat.   Don’t let boredom get you down, jump in the car and take a trip to see these Ohio parks for yourself. Be sure to take a look at the website listed above to see everything Blue Rock State Forest has to offer.
