Pine Hill Park (Crall/Sauers)

The 283 acre Pine Hill Park was created by combining two land parcels — 186 acres of the historical Sauers family farm and 97 acres of woodland owned by the Crall family. The property naturally divides itself into Crall Woods and Sauers Farm, each with its own district and unique characteristics.

Crall Woods

Location: 263 Township Road 1601

Trail Map


Crall Woods is known regionally through an extensive study performed by the Ohio Biological Survey (1964) that resulted in the publication of the Ohio Biological Survey book entitled An Ecological Study of Crall Woods: A Remnant of Forest Primeval in Ashland County, Ohio. It is also known nationally through the designation of the area as a National Natural Landmark by the National Park Service (1974).

Given the unique characteristics of this park, Crall Woods is maintained as a natural area.

Sauers Farm

Location: 260 Township Road 1601

Trail Map


The Sauers family originally acquired this farm in the 1930s and it was known throughout the area as Pine Hill because of the pine trees that lined the adjacent roads. Many of these pine trees still exist. While a substantial portion of the old farmstead is currently being naturalized, a portion will also be managed as a farm to showcase our agricultural heritage.
