Description

The Mill Creek MetroParks are a district of parks along the namesake creek that runs off from the Mahoning River, from Youngstown through to Boardman. Among the Parks, there is a golf course, a botanical garden, a historic mill, an 11-mile paved bike way and more; along with nature preserves and recreational areas. Bouldering (low climbing without ropes), along with bouldering specific safety equipment, i.e. helmets and portable bouldering pads, is permitted within the area encompassed by Bears Den Road, Cross Drive and New Cross Drive according to park rules (as of November 12, 2019). Roped climbing and rappelling are prohibited.
