Caesar Creek State Park is highlighted by clear blue waters, scattered woodlands, meadows and steep ravines The 3,741-acre park offers some of the finest outdoor recreation in southwest Ohio including boating, hiking, camping and fishing
This is a fun hike that takes about 4 hours at a decent pace. Little under 12 miles for full loop. I would recommend starting at Fifty Spring Campground and going counter clockwise. This will put you near the visitor center just over half way, good place for a break. The all trails map is not correct near Clarksville Road. It shows following the road, but the trail stays closer to the lake is well marked. The 73 bridge crossing is not much fun, lots of traffic and not much room to walk.
I hiked the perimeter trail about a year ago. My plan was to spend the night along the way, but I ended up hiking the whole trail in one day. It was raining, so I decided just to head home. There are some nice views of the lake, a waterfall and a swinging bridge along the way. There was some road walking at both ends of the lake, which I'm not a fan of. It was a nice hike overall, though.

Nice little trail, not too much traffic even on a Labor Day. Very well marked trail with both bright orange blazes as well as periodic signs of "you are here, go this way". Moderate terrain with only a few ups and downs. Good lake views in various spots.
