Absolutely amazing trail system if you run just this trail or connecting trail at airport.

the trails weren't the most exciting or the best marked, but it was a fun place to explore and get about 3 miles in.

Orange trail can be really muddy and slippery. Come with water resistant boots, spare pair of shoes, and prepared to fall.

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.

Very good trail, you can run, hike, backpack, and fish. Friendly people go here, have never had a bad experience here.
Also I take my dogs with me all the time.

This is a little hidden gem in the middle of Cincinnati.

Beautiful setting, well kept trails, and the creek is picturesque. Can't wait for warm weather to let my kids take a dip!

I love this trail. Very well marked with a lot of hills and great views. It was very beautiful to go and sit at the high point and eat my lunch before I finished my hike.

The park could really use some work to get rid of invasive species. I have identified 5 different invasive species that are taking over the park. I love this park and grew up creek walking there so its very sad to see how over grown with invasives it is.

Nothing is more empowering than knowing you can up and leave society at any time and not only survive....but thrive!!!!

Nice view in the forest. But need better maintenance.

Not bad...

The area where the trails were is lovely. Lots of ivy along the paths. The trail the boys scouts had created was very nice , clearly marked, wide with stumps painted to avoid falling.
But... I got confused back in the other trails and they weren’t clearly marked at all coming to intersections with no clue which way to go. Then after traveling along a trail for some time I suddenly came upon a trail closed sign with no previous warning. There was a high bridge with guardrails missing which was dangerous and I felt a few soft spots in some of the other bridges. I found this unfortunate since it is a pretty area for hiking. I will return to see if things have changed but won’t go back if no updates have happened.

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.

Beautiful trail that takes you along the banks of the Ohio River.

If you go clockwise you will take on the most difficult part of the trail first. Lots of inclines and deep ravines but nothing too overwhelming. My 12 year old daughter tackled the trail with no problem. Deer and other wildlife along the way. Scenery changes often. Went on a Saturday morning and heard trains most of the first half of the way. About mid-way point there is a shelter that overlooks the valley. Great views and great spot for a break. The second half runs along the river/creek. This part seemed much quieter than the first-half. Also, much easier terrain; flat, wide trails that runs mostly through meadows. Lots of creek crossings. Excellent trail with a variety of scenery. If there was any downside it was that we went a day after it rained fairly hard. The trail along the river/creek was quite muddy in a few spots.

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

Beautiful trail. Well marked. If you’re going counterclockwise you could miss a couple turns but you will figure it out very quickly. Nice river view at the beginning or if you want it at the end go clockwise. A few nice heart rate increasing inclines but nothing anyone can’t handle if you have no health constraints. Go thru a few different types of forest, beautiful wildflower meadow with a vast landscape view and pass by a pond where catch and release fishing is allowed. I did this early as a Sunday sunrise hike and it was lovely. You do hear traffic and trains and that may be worse later in the day. That’s just Ohio trails though. Saw many deer, rabbits and different birds. Nothing not to like here.

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.

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.

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

great trails but needs better markers. the train trussel is fenced off.

I think we got off trail because it was not well marked, but it was still nice. Trails are dirt trails so if has rained recently trails are pretty muddy. Dog friendly.

Bunch of small short trails, pretty easy to just keep walking through one to another. Good wild flowers, and a pretty creek.

The somewhat rugged trails make for a nice weekend hike.
