The Coupling Reserve is made up of 20 sloping and river-bottom acres. The reserve was donated to the Erie MetroParks in 1991 by the nonprofit Coupling Corporation, which for years had operated the property as a spiritual retreat center. Built around a historic railroad theme, the reserve grounds are open to the general public from 8 a.m. to dark year-round.
Hogback Ridge Park, one of the first Lake Metroparks, is named for its most prominent natural feature: a high, narrow ridge of land bounded on two sides by steep valleys. This type of ridge is named for its resemblance to the bony spine of a hog.

This area is heavily wooded and offers an abundance of wildlife and wildflowers.
