Nice features, bridges, small cascades, but very close to neighborhoods it feels like you are walking in someone’s woods.
Overall a nice short hike to take the kids to.

Real nice trail, even in January. Great views and a good mix of inclines and creek cutbacks to make for a nice little hike. Road noise is definitely there, but it doesn't make or break it for me.

I attempted this route but the markings are terrible. The blazes are white with (I would assume) the letter of the trail. But regardless the trail your on, it seems E is the only blaze you get. Why not use colored blazes.
Markings and blazes aside, I loved this location and now that I've somewhat figured it out, I will return again and again.

Super easy, peaceful, and kind people everywhere. Can get very busy on nice days.

great trail close to town. definitely moderate with some steep inclines, you'll need boots, we hiked on New Year's Day after heavy rain and the trail was muddy and slippery. great views of the Ohio River. too bad there is so much road noise from Gender Road. Lots are not well marked but the trail is!

Great resource for many different trail experiences. Well kept and well marked trails, plus the visitor center is a cozy place to stop by afterwards. The children's playscape is designed nicely and a fun bonus area.

Again a beautiful walk on the Mountain. most of the trees have lost their leaves except for the oaks. The trails were moist to wet but very manageable. The views of the Ohio River were stunning as usual. Thanks for the trail maintenance!

Was a great place to take my dog to walk/jog on weekdays. Not crowded at all. Seen maybe two other people!

Nice view in the forest. But need better maintenance.

Very scenic. The main loop is in good condition and mostly runnable with some very steep sections for a good workout. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Didn’t see another person even though I ran it on a Saturday morning in decent weather.

My dog and I really enjoyed this trail. If I lived closer, I’d be here frequently. I loved the way it goes down by the creek for quite a large part of the trail. I think there was a side trail you could cut across the top and not down by the creek but not sure. I just wish it was longer!

Neat and clean, well maintained.

Great trails close to the city. Markings aren’t great and they are not very well maintained but a lot of mileage possible.

Fantastic all the way around. They recently re-routed a section of the Far Ridge Trail, but it is only a slight deviation from the standard route and clearly marked. Plenty of squirrels and chipmunks along the path to keep you company, and lots of visibility making it easy to admire the contour of the land. This is probably the nicest hiking trail in the Cincinnati area. The Rim Trail at Caesar Creek comes close, but probably only because of the views of the lake.

Perfect little loop, with surprisingly wonderful view from the top of a ridge near the stairs. Take the route starting with geology to avoid coming up the stairs. Connect this route with the Redwing Trail for a few extra miles, or continue along the Upland Trail that encircles the center of the park.

Short little walk through a meadow and forest, we like this as a warmup to the Little Turtle trail nearby

Overall, great little trail. Went for a sunrise hike and it was beautiful, no one else on the trail. The ridge trail section of loop was my favorite; only downside was hearing cars. It’s not a sweeping view, but there’s a nice little nook looking over the river. Appears there are some nice side trails to explore next time.

9/29 - we wanted to do this trail and saw signs that most loops are closed for hunting. Big disappointment

good little trail for a family hike or a quick run. its a short trail so we ran it twice. the trail offers a very nice wooded scene and the potential to see wildlife. would recommend this trail. the trail level i feel should be rated as easy. if you are in even ok shape it may leave you wanting more. not a difficult trail but still very nice and enjoyable

We had a great time. Even after a day of rain the trail wasn’t bad.

Beautiful trail to hike or jog- I’d rate this more easy to moderate, in comparison to other trails- would be easy with kids, where as California nature park is rated as moderate and is much more difficult

Dense forest with trails mostly catering to mountain bikers. Actually makes for a nice place to hike since anyone passing by bike will be out of sight quickly. Devou-tion is quite steep and I saw no one on this seciton as opposed to being passed probably 5 times on the other sections.

Would have been nice to know about the cost to get in. I don't bring my wallet to go for a walk... just frustrated.

The trail is a bit overgrown in some areas and you definitely need a map or gps application to stay on the loop. It's pretty rough with roots in some areas but overall it's a great trail considering it's in the middle of a city.

love trail running here!!!

Good trail for how close it is to the city. Extremely overgrown in a lot of areas, but overall a good hike.

Nice wide trail, in good shape. Mostly gravel, some spots dirt and some spots grass. Part of trail closed due to a bridge being fixed

Really enjoyed this hike. Not too easy or tough and beautiful woods.
