Flint Ridge is a historical landmark about 40 miles east of Columbus, Oh. Many great places to hike, and the historical aspect is pretty interesting. The ridge itself is many miles of solid flint... an almost inexhaustible supply. It was supposedly discovered by the Palaeo Indians about 9 thousand years ago. Because there was enough flint for all, and the strategic advantage the ridge would give whoever controlled it, it was considered neutral territory, and a war free zone. The ridge stretches through Newark, Zanesville, and Glenford, Ohio and can be reached by I-70 or Rt. 16. There is a museum and state memorial park in Glenford, which is pretty neat from what I can remember... by god, it's been a while.

If nothing else, a nice place to walk your dog an maybe pick up a couple of arrow heads.
