Moderate trail with various overlooks of the Oxbow wetlands and Ohio River. Best in the spring before sunset.

Great trail with a couple overlooks of the Ohio River. One strenuous hill in the middle but otherwise very easy.

amazing view!

View was great, not hilly

Great local trail that is family-friendly. There are lots of pawpaws growing here. The scenery is best if hiked in the fall and winter but you can still view the Ohio and Great Miami Rivers.

Relative to what's available in the Cincinnati area, when it comes to hiking, it's a scenic trail. Starts out with a moderate uphill then proceeds along a ridge with views of the Great Miami and Ohio Rivers at the end. The trail is a gravel and dirt mixture and is about six feet wide, so no need to get covered in spiderwebs or poison ivy :) Also, this trail isn't as inundated with invasive flora, such as honeysuckle, as most of the other trails in the area. For me, it makes it more pleasurable. Plenty of old growth.

Lastly, keep your eyes open for Bald Eagles! I've only seen them in the wild once, and it was at Shawnee Lookout.

The geocache make this trail all the better.

Fun short hike kid friendly on the way out from the river view look carefully for the off beat trail on the right and follow it for the cache

As the overview states, this trail is well maintained. It is an easy hike with a few hills. You are in the woods the whole time but have some great views of the Ohio river. Unfortunately, the invasive honeysuckle is taking over an otherwise great view of the woods. Along most of the trail the tall canopy of hardwoods allow you to see some wildlife (deer, owls, and such). This is a great walk for families.

Really nice trail, it's a great workout because it's all hills, one thing though, I never really got into the hike because u hear cars, see the highway, see electrical towers, or hear mowers, overall a good hike :)

This trail features access to 3 geocaches including the oldest in Ohio, a few old growth trees, and one great overlook plus a couple ok overlooks. The rare & endangered Running Buffalo Clover has been found on this trail.

The length is about 1.5 miles in the lollypop loop style. Rating would be easy with a couple moderate hills. A nice evening stroll.

The park has 2 other marked hiking trails totalling around 3.5 miles
