Sharon Woods

  • On this trail you may see a snake sunning himself on the ground or hunting for some food in a tree. The park is home to many species of snakes, including ring necked, black rat and the northern water snake that is often misidentified as a cottonmouth.
  • Sharon Woods has a 30-acre lake with a 3.5-mile shore line. The average depth of the lake is around six feet. Some of the more common species of fish in Sharon Lake are bluegill, channel catfish and small mouth and largemouth bass.
  • Look for wood ducks in quiet coves at the lake’s edge. This colorful and unique species is one of the few Ohio ducks that lay their eggs in tree cavities, which are sometimes 50 feet above the ground!
  • Eliminated from Ohio in 1830, beaver are slowly returning to Sharon Woods. It’s the largest rodent in North America, weighing up to 60 pounds. Flat, paddle-like tail and webbed feet enable it to navigate its aquatic environment with ease, sometimes staying underwater for up to 15 minutes.
