Luis T. on Ault Park Trails
Several trails with many ambiguous markers, overgrown trails, and still pretty fun. Trails are pretty trafficked (I came on a weekend) but are quite beautiful.
Decent hike. Unfortunately there really is not any good hiking in Cincinnati. The map shows a shorter route. I took the long route, which is probably around 3 miles. Training for Mt. Elbert in Colorado so this is closest I can get to incline hiking in Cincy. I would come back though!
Joel C. on Ault Park Trails
Beautiful wooded walk with well groomed trails. My only complaint is that it's hard to keep track of the trails. You can do lots of wandering but it's difficult to stay on a specific trail.
Ault Park is a beautiful urban park. I would recommend going in the warmer months. There is a young cherry blossom forest there that will look beautiful in spring, along with privately kept gardens that add a lot of character to the park. It's also pet friendly.
As far as the trails go, we hiked the short Shattuc trail. My only complaint was that you could see a lot of civilization while actually on the trail. That being said, it is an urban park and things like that are to be expected. Ultimately, we enjoyed the short hike and plan to return and do the main Forest Loop trail when it reopens after hunting season.
