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
, 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.
