McGraw Edison Recreation Area


McGraw Edison Recreation Area is an 80-acre park located nine miles east of Zanesville in Perry Township. The site is a pleasing mixture of gently rolling grasslands and steeper wooded hillsides. Water features include Little Salt Creek and an unnamed tributary, a wetland, and a small pond. An exceptional feature of the park is a hemlock grove located near the confluence of the unnamed tributary and Little Salt Creek. This microcosm of rock outcrops and tall, graceful hemlocks provides a stark contrast to the rest of the park’s rolling fields and hardwood forests.

Thanks to the volunteer efforts of Appalachia Outdoor Adventures (AOA), five miles of beginner/intermediate mountain bike trails wind through the outer edges of the park. AOA members continue to maintain the trails.
