The West Branch Trail runs north-south along the West Branch of the Nimishillen Creek, parallel to Interstate 77. It is an important connector for North Canton and Canton because it links Dogwood Park and Hoover High School in North Canton to the Canton park system. The Canton park system parallels the West Branch and is an established greenway of parks, cultural features and recreational amenities. This corridor has been cut off from the western suburbs of the City because of the Interstate and is interrupted by several east-west roadways. Modern road improvements and traffic patterns have obscured the historic connections. By improving intersection streetscape designs and establishing pedestrian crossings, a continuous north-south link of open space with walking and biking trails can be re-established. Several of the east-west countywide connections intersect with this route, creating primary activity nodes. This continuous link between all the parks along the West Branch will be feasible with infrastructure improvements and a consistent way-finding program of signage and landscape treatments.

The Enchanted Forest each October is an exciting event. You are lead by robed guides along the nighttime hiking trails in the forest lit by jack-o-lanterns. Dress for the Halloween occassion. They chat while sipping on cider and munching pretzels. A great alternative to Holloween.

Many interesting nature walks include fern walks, glacial and ecology talks, and wildflower excursions. The popular birds migration draws large crowds. In the late summer, The Wilderness Center has prairies blazing with color. Walking throught the tall grass gives you the experience of early prairies in Ohio. Visit Sigrist Woods, to see one of the last virgin forest remnants in the state.

The Wilderness Center supports an Astronomy Club that meets monthly. Public viewing is held on the First Friday of each month after dark weather permitting. Other clubs include the birding club, woodcarvers, cly fishing clude, geology club, cavers and climbers club, and art club.
