This is one of the several trails in John Bryan State Park. It is located on the south side of the river, connecting to the Stage Coach trail (H on the park map) by footbridge and the lower portion of the park and to the John Rich trail (F) on the park map) also by footbridge.

Great hike. Rough terrain keeps your eyes on the trail instead of the beautiful scenery.

Bridge was closed which prevented completion of the loop, but otherwise a really nice trail system.

Grew up right down the street from this. Gem of a park, that Glen Helen.

Google directions are accurate to site. At time of my hike the South Gorge trail portion of this hike was closed for repair (May 2016). Pittsburgh-Cincinnati Stagecoach Trail is open. From John Bryan this trail is a long level well maintained path along Little Miami River. Ends at footbridge across river to South Gorge trail AND the entrance to Clifton Gorge State Nature Preserve which I highly recommend to see cliffs and waterfalls.

We completed a ~10 mi loop that included the Clifton Gorge trail. The area was covered in hoar frost as fog had settled into the gorge and froze on the trees. It was just beautiful. We took 6 boy scouts and the challenge of the trail was enough to keep them interested. The scenery was great. Check out the site of the painting "The Blue Hole!"

First time visiting Yellow Springs. The trail was soggy from the rain but still in good condition. A little mud never hurt anyone. Family friendly and low skill level. We'll be back to explore more routes. Highly recommended for a short, easy hike.
