Bebb Natural Areas
Hiking trails and streams provide access to varied terrain, woodland and meadow habitats for wildflowers, birds, wildlife, and primitive campsites. This area is accessed by the segment of the American Discovery Trail that runs through the park. The Howe Picnic Shelter includes access to a picnic tables, parking spaces, and a swing. Other trails traverse ravines and banks of Dry Fork Creek and its tributaries. Lack of nearby lighting make for unique "dark sky" viewing during a special program or while camping at a reserved site.
Invasive pests, such as the Emerald Ash Borer, can destroy our forests. To minimize this danger, movement of firewood in or out of all MetroParks is prohibited. Firewood must be purchased for $5/bundle from MetroParks by calling the Administrative Office at 513.867.5835 by noon on the Wednesday prior to your arrival.
