Little Beaver Creek

Little Beaver Creek represents some of the most rugged and wildest land in Ohio. Forested to a width of over a mile in places, this stream is home of the endangered hellbender (large aquatic salamander) and retains its original aquatic community. From ridges topping over 200 feet, there are breathtaking views of the valley below.
