Boch Hollow in May

We visited Boch Hollow Nature Preserve again last week. The weather was just about perfect. Here’s a few pictures from our hike.

This opossum was slowly wondering up a dry stream bed when he decided to stop and pose for a picture.

  1. Great photos! I just saw a photo that someone posted on Instagram of a waterfall. Any idea where that is and how to get there? I will be visiting Boch Hollow next weekend and I want to see all the good spots!

    1. The falls is called ‘Robinson Falls’ and is located off-trail in Boch Hollow. You’ll need an off-trail permit from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources in order to visit the falls. They will provide a map and directions along with the permit.

  2. The photos of the field of butterweed is just gorgeous! That golden yellow is such a bright, cheerful colour. I love the detail you captured in the flower pictures too. Sounds like you had ideal weather for the hike 🙂 x
