Shallenberger State Nature Preserve

This preserve is an easy drive from Lancaster, Ohio. located 4 miles southwest of Lancaster on U.S. Route 22. Turn right on  Beck’s Knob Road. The parking lot will be on your right about 1/4 mile down the road. The hiking trails take you to the base of Ruble Knob and around and to the top of Allen Knob.  There is a nice view from the top of Allen Knob, and a large collection of spring wildflowers along the trails. The back side of Allen knob has a nice display of Large Flowered Trillium, Rue Anemone, Hepatica and other wild flowers in season. Recently the PreservArt Ohio group taught a wildflower photography program at the park.
