An In-Town Tourist Feature:
…because Adventure begins in the heart and Travel starts at the end of your own driveway.
A 1500 foot pier is an unexpected find in landlocked Central Ohio. The Hoover Mudflats Boardwalk in Galena, Ohio lies on the northeastern edge of Hoover Reservoir and is a popular recreational site for boaters, birders and fishermen.
Depending on the time of day and if the fish are biting, you’ll stroll through the quiet conversations of fishermen intent on hooking a large-mouth bass or channel catfish -or into virtual solitude, pressed only by rhythmic waves, gusting winds and the cheerful chirps and calls of a variety of shore birds.
Bald eagles, peregrine falcons and osprey are lake area residents and can be spotted with a steady eye on the sky. The water may be mud brown in color, but pier’s end offers a view expansive enough to awaken oceanic dreams…
