The Bridle Trail at Prairie Oaks Metro Park in West Jefferson, Ohio is an easy 6.7 mile loop trail that crosses Big Darby Creek and goes through woods and prairies.

The trail starts off at the parking lot and runs in either east or west directions to two loops - a loop to the south and a loop to the north. This recording heads west and follows the northern loop and north spur trail (out-and-back) before heading back to parking and then follows the southern loop. If you plan to see the entire trail, including hiking both loops in their entirety, it's a 6.7-mile trek.

Regardless of which way you take on the main loop, you'll hit a fork shortly after turning onto either outer loop. At either of these intersections you can take the shortcut to make a smaller loop by cutting across the outer loop or you can stay along the outer loop for a longer hike.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
