Short but really fun technical trails, lots of good elevation changes.

Great for doggo walkin and bits of water splashin.

I love this little trail! It is sufficiently challenging, especially if you take the PawPaw trail down the other side of the ridge. It’s well marked and has some great views of the river (at least with no leaves on the trees!)

beautiful views. Totally worth the walk

NIce trail, but be ready for mosquitoes especially in the summer

My boyfriend and I love to take our dog out on this trail. The creek at the base is nice and the paths straight up the hill give you a pretty good work out. We come here often.

I go with my dog all the time because I can hike there. kudos to the volunteers who maintain the trails.

Surprisingly quiet on a beautiful day. A few wildlife sightings - a red crested woodpecker, a dark gray squirrel, and random birds. A nice crispy November day.

great recreational trail, epic view of Cincinnati

So beautiful on a fall day . Easy with kids .

Loved it!! Great hike, great views.

What a great trail. Thanks to all those who do the hard work to maintain it. North and South Paw Paw trails bisect it making it possible to do all sorts of workout routes of varying difficulty. I backpack it for strength training and run it for aerobic endurance workouts. Have taken my grandson on it at night with headlamps. The tree trunks are punctuated by the glowing eyes of huge wolf spiders. Hiking it in winter snow and ice with crampons is a treat because you’ll have it all to yourself. It is an absolute treasure. Try running it to the soundtrack of “Last of the Mohicans”. Don’t miss the spring display of all sorts of wildflowers.

I've hiked this easy trail a few times. The trail cuts along a duckweed pond and through the forest.

Well maintained, picturesque and challenging. Water feature too!

Afternoon Trek - Devou Park Back Country Bike/Hike Trails: Visiting Ohio, staying in Cincinnati - Started out at trail head near (old) baseball diamond at border of Covington, Ludlow, KY. From trail head went up “incinerator.” Crossed over on “Bates-Coombs Loop.” After loop, went back to “Incinerator.” From there, all the way up to “Pigs Tail;” then, crossed-over on to “Back Bowl” then, down on “Trail of Devou-tion.” “Devou-tion” was a difficult path compared to the other ones I took (also, “one-way”). Ended trek pretty much where I started. The old incinerator is pretty cool - nice graffiti. So is the older train trestle bridge. The trails are well-maintained, in good condition. Bikers were very courteous. Few if any bikers / hikers day of my visit. Well-worth a visit if you’re not from here...

Started out at trail head for John Volz Nature Trail in the upper part of Devou Park in Covington, KY. Trail is very pretty, easy to navigate until you reach area where cement walking path, steps start. There, you may encounter some low-hanging overgrowth, deteriorating steps. Going down path is easy (fair slope); going up seems harder (incline). Kind of wandered around a lot (looking at path on AllTrails); just wanted to get by band shell, see some of parks pretty spots like lookout point. Friend has niece who paints rocks; left one on trail (see photo). Few if hikers or even walkers day of my visit. Well-worth a visit if you’re not from here...

The day I visited it was VERY muddy and slippery - so much that it limited my ability to enjoy the hike. We also thought trail signs were a bit confusing.

This trail has an inner and outer loop. I've been walking the inner loop with my 3 year old on his balance bike and my 1 year old in a stroller. It's my favorite place to take my son on his bike. There's only one place where you cross a road, so I don't have to worry about traffic and safety. Nice gentle hills for him to coast. It's a parkour trail, he likes to stop and try the exercises. Pretty interesting for a paved trail... small stream, parkour, people walking dogs, etc.

Hiked this trail with my husband, 3 year old, and 16 month old. It was perfect for us. The beginning (inner loop) was easy so baby could toddle and wear him self out. My husband carried baby in a pack through the harder back half. We got our exercise in the back half with hillier terrain. 3 year old made it through the whole hike with just a few minutes of piggy back riding. Bridges, hills, fallen trees, slugs, mushrooms, and toads gave the trail lots of interest. Shaded the whole way through. Bathrooms with running water right at trail head. Great family hike.

Healthy climbs, can take Paw Paw Gap Trail as a shortcut. Downhill Eagle Scout Trail is very nice. Benches at different lookout points. Slippery when wet.

I nice short trail featuring some impressive trees. My favorite time to hike here is at dusk when you are likely to hear barred owls. You can connect this trail with other nearby trails to make it a much longer experience if you'd like, though I'm not sure if the park recommends it.

An unmarked trail behind my house meets up with this trail so I'm always hiking it. It's a great place to escape and relax for an hour or so. The best season to walk this trail is definitely spring, right when the trout lilies come out. I love coming here after an evening spring rain because seemingly nobody else is in the park and the wood thrushes sing their song to you.

Nice trails. Definitely more suited for trail bikes but signs offer requirements to give way to hikers. Everyone very courteous on trails. Found myself standing aside with my dog in patches of poison ivy quite often. I'm not allergic but my son is so my dog got a bath that night. Something to keep in mind. Long socks if you are allergic.
