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.
