Adding to Inn at Honey Run's existing trail system, the new Purple Trail offers added hiking that begins at the honeycomb suites, rolls through open grasslands and leads to a wooded trail that circles a pond at the back of the property. The new trail features an elevated resting bench with a wonderful view of the pond. Adding a place to enjoy the Inn's spectacular sunset views, benches located by the pond display a great outlook of the water and abundant wildlife native to northeast Ohio. The new trail, along with a new Ohio Prairie Installation, was developed by Inn at Honey Run Landscape Horticulturalist Ashley Sommers.
"We designed the Ohio Prairie feature to add to the overall beauty of Inn at Honey Run, giving our guests one more place to experience nature," said Sommers. "New native grasses, dozens of annual and perennial wildflowers, bringing beautiful color to the environment. In addition to swaying grasses and wildflowers, guests will enjoy the wildlife, birds and butterflies the prairie pastures attract." Sommers added that the project is ultra-green, requiring no mowing, fertilization or irrigation.
