Hiking & Biking Trails

With 38,000 acres of land, much of which is open for public access, trail systems are increasing in popularity at the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District (MWCD) reservoirs.

The MWCD lakes offer numerous self-contained loop trails at Atwood, Charles Mill, Pleasant Hill, Seneca, and Tappan Lake Parks. Atwood Lake Park also offers a new biking trail connection and scenic bridge.
