On the edge of Mount Vernon, Ohio on Yauger Road you will find the Wolf Run Dog Park.  This is a really nice fenced dog park and Wolf Run is a great place for your dog to run and play freely.  We have taken our dog Chase to Wolf Run and he loves the wide open space so that he can run and he especially likes the lower and outer edge of the fenced area because there are trees and a nice wooded area.  If you are unfamiliar with exactly where Wolf Run Dog Park is located less than a mile from the corner / intersection of Yauger Road and Upper Gilchrist Road which is right by the Mount Vernon Ohio UEC Movie Theatre on the east side of Mount Vernon.  This feature article is part of our ongoing series titled 365 Things To Do in Knox County Ohio by Sam Miller. your camera because you are in for a real photo opprtunity when you visit the Honey Run Park in Howard, Ohio.  One of the major highlights of this country park is the gorgeous 25 foot tall waterfall that cascades over beautiful stones.  You can hike from the Honey Run waterfall all the way to the Kokosing River experiencing gorgeous wooded areas, sandstone cliffs and large boulders.  If you would like to visit the Honey Run Park the street address is 10855 Hazel Dell Road, Howard, Ohio.  From the intersection of Route 62 and Coshocton Road / US 36, Honey Run Park is 2.37 miles (just a couple of minutes).  

According to the Knox County Parks District, "the Honey Run Waterfall site contains a rare plant community (disjunct, boreal habitat) and unique views of the Blackhand sandstone, formed some 350 million years ago.  Towering hemlocks, partridge berry, witch hazel and rue anemone grace this natural area".
