Description

Much of the rural character of Jefferson Township remains along theroads within the Jefferson Township Scenic Byway. Clark State is the"backbone" of the byway, where scenic vistas of meadows and fields areinterspersed with stretches of trees. Homes and barns are tucked in thetrees and along the edges of the fields and meadows. Clark Statecrosses the Township's two most important creeks -- Rocky Fork towardthe west and Blacklick to the east. The view of Rocky Fork gorge fromthe Clark State Road bridge is stunning in all seasons. Blacklick ismore pastoral in nature in the area of Clark State but forms its owngorge further south, near East Broad Street. A description of ClarkState at Blacklick Creek is found in the description of Headley'sCorners within the section on Reynoldsburg-New Albany Road.

Along with the views of the creeks, specific vistas can be enjoyedalong Clark State. They include the meadow on the south side of ClarkState between Rocky Fork Hunt Club Barn and West Park Lane, a largeforested area extending from the hunt club east to Crooked Mile Roadand fields and meadows between Crooked Mile Road and Rocky Fork Creek.Drivers may encounter horseback riders, cyclists, joggers, and walkersalong Clark State. Deer are also prevalent, so careful driving isimportant. Jefferson Community Park, the Township's main publicrecreational area, is located on the north side of Clark State, about amile east of Reynoldsburg-New Albany Road. This park, with its threeshelter houses, woods, pond, playground, ball field, and heatedrestrooms is a popular year-round gathering place for those who love the outdoors.
