Nature and Science

The petroglyph rock is located at the head of a small deep narrow ravine. A scenic trail follows the ravine as does a small stream that is fed by a natural spring.

For its length (one half mile) it is one of the most beautiful walks in nature. Flanked by magnificent hemlocks on both sides shading the ravine and rock shelters recessed into the Sharon Conglomerate (sandstone) outcroppings.

Seasonal wild flowers grow along the top rim of the ravine on either side. The variety of nature provides visitors with a fantastic show of species native to the area.

The Jackson Historical Society sells copies of " An Annotated List of the Woody Plants at the Leo Petroglyph State Memorial, Jackson County, Ohio". This work discusses in depth the many types of trees and shrubs found in the park.
