A medium difficulty trail, not for the faint of heart...! A great trail for dogs and hiking enthusiasts. It has seen several bad windstorms in the decade or so that I've been there. One of the staircases still closed due to the last storm.

Short trail for a quick, ok view of the river. Decent trail but nothing noteworthy about it.

It's an alright place. Wish there was more trails and they would fix the part that had a landslide, it's been like that for years now.

Overall it's a nice little hike, well maintained and marked. Just a little too short for me to drive to it.

Great day trail with a beautiful overlook of the Ohio. Also has a nice outdoor wedding area to enjoy.

Very serene. Beautiful overlook of the Ohio River. Interested to come back in late spring when everything blossoms. Lots of birds to see too!!

An easy hike. Took my dog along on leash and was no problem. Perfect for an easy-going hike.

Easy hike along the trail. December is a great time here as I saw a red-bellid woodpecker, a downy woodpecker, and a few birds I didn't recognize. The trail still smells like autumn and you can easily hear critters wrestling in the leaves. It was also nice to see an old man telling his two young grandsons about how life was in his youth.

A fairly easy loop with well marked trails. There is a porta-potty near the good sized parking lot. A Hamilton Co. Parks parking permit is required but not sure how often they patrol.

This is a great little trail for a quick hike. It is very well maintained with minimal gear required for an enjoyable hike. The entire loop is just shy of 2 miles with a beautiful overlook of the Ohio river as the cherry on top. My son and finished the loop in about 45 minutes. The North section of the trail is closed due to a landslide, however we were able to manage it with minimal extra effort. Obviously, this section of the trail is not in the same condition as the nice gravel, and manicured condition of the rest of the trail. All in all a great hike through the woods.

Great small park with a great view of the Ohio River. I took a few trails, and ended up with 1.73 miles total, so don't expect a long walk! Park and trails are clean and well marked, some are stone trails while others are dirt with stairs cut into the path to help with the climbs.

I love this trail! It's cool on a hot day, warm on a cold day... quiet, peaceful and a wonderful break from the usual daily routine of life...I never regret a walk through Withrow!
