My husband and I had a great time on this hike. We saw two deer sitting in the brush as we were crossing the bridge. Trail markers are a little confusing but we managed to find our way back. The old stone chimneys were neat to photograph and the shells near the creek were great to see.
Why are paved bike paths included in trails. I am a trail runner who wants to run on unpaved trails. I wish we had more of these. The bike paths we have in this area are very boring. Yes they are long, but they are also very straight because they were converted from railroads. We do have a great connector near me in Miamisburg - Medlar and that is very nice. Now I wish we could put a nice dirt trail to run on. Running on dirt is great for knees, hips, etc
I love this trail. The out and back trail is perfect for a short visit with Mother Nature and there are plenty of things to marvel at.
I always eat my lunch at the river about half way through the barn trail. The entrance can get a little muddy and mosquito-y but once you get into the thick of the woods, you won't be disappointed.
Really looking forward to having time to hike all the bigger loop trails sometime soon.
