First time visiting this park. Completed a slightly shorter version of the hike - yellow, silver and part of orange for about 5 miles. Trail ranges from very flat to some steep inclines. I'm relatively new to hiking in Southwest Ohio and this has been one of the better places I've been to so far. Trails are very well marked. I really enjoyed this place and plan to visit again.

Very good trail. Has just about everything you could want. There are some serious elevation changes at one section. I'm new to hiking so it was a great/fun challenge for me. Not that it was too hard but you could def feel it in yours legs. Haha. Loved the views by the conservatory area. Great hike. Btw it's not 6.8 miles but closer to 8

Good hills and views. Definitely a moderate trail so if you a beginner be ready for some strenuous hills. Most of it is under tree coverage.

The Orange trail specifically is a diverse fantastic day hike. just taxing enough to wear on you not so taxing that you'll need a chopper out.

Perfect training run - hills, steps, varied terrain, well-maintained. Last time out (today) no traffic.

this was a long trail for me but it was a nice challenge. there was plenty of beautiful wildlife, including flowers, trees, etc. there were some places that were quite muddy though. we had to get completely submerged in mud past our ankles to get through.

Great trail for trail running/hiking in the Dayton area. Varied terrain, including some short hills that tax your lungs and quads, but are not too difficult. As noted by others, the section along the river can get extremely muddy after it rains. There are ways to avoid this area if you wish. There are a few creek crossings too, but most can be hopped over or crossed on rocks. The trails are well marked and color coded. A good trail for training runs or a day with the family.

Loved this trail! Some good sized hills, but nothing too difficult. There was a section that was very muddy, but there were also signs warning of the potential for it.
