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

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.

Lovely paved/gravel walk next to the creek. Lots of runners and other walkers. Dogs welcome. I look forward to going back when it snows, in spring, fall, and summer!

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.

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!

Best to be there in both winter and summer. Both are very beautiful

Very well maintained trail. I really enjoyed the step stones across the creek.

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.

We did this hike with our four year old. The beginning of the hike the trial was very overgrown and had to climb over fallen trees every ten to twenty yards. After we had hiked to the first trail junction we saw a sign that said the trial we were on was closed due to hazardous trail conditions. Would have been nice to have that sign at the beginning of the trail as well. The rest of the trail was in decent shape. Saw plenty of beech and Sycamore trees. Numerous benches along the trail which was nice for the little one.

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

fun walk by the river and through the woods.

A nice easy paved trail, but it can be very heavily trafficked at times with lots of people to avoid if you’re running. It’s open to bikes as well, though I rarely see them.

Nice view in the forest. But need better maintenance.

pretty chill when your just looking to get away.

After a few mis-starts, found the trail. Good hike, decent amount of time in the woods. Wear decent shoes - trail is full of roots.

Very easy trail, also pretty boring. Most of the trail is a gravel road. The small part of the trail in the woods provided breathtaking views, but it was a very short time spent in the woods. I’d skip this one.

Nice cardio if you're just getting back into it with some stunning sights. switchback paths available if you get tired partway.

my wife and I enjoy the trail woods area the only problem was the sing direction need to be better. this app help me alot find the way I will do it again

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!

This trail is a lot of fun. My kids were able to do this trail easily, but it was enough to burn off all their energy. The park is clean and very well maintained. I also like that you can combine different parts of the various trails to customize your hiking experience. My family loves hiking here and we will continue to do so, hopefully, for a long time.

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.

Love the view, the hike and being able to relax. Good walking trail.

Trails were in good shape. Plenty of wildlife to be seen.

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.

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

Nice trail, well maintained and marked. Mix of gravel road into some forest area along a creek. Lots of wildlife viewing opportunity, specially birds.
