To Do Map

I loved this little hike, I did a few loops around and made it into about 6.5 miles in all. Definitely some steep parts, but overall very easy. I agree that you can still hear the sounds of the road and trains, but that didn’t really bother me. I thought the paths were very well marked, and my dogs loved it!

Enjoyed hiking the Nice trails
Well maintained
Variying degrees of elevation
Cold weather hiking cures Cabin fever

decent mostly flat no real challenges but nice scenery and environment. nice free walk after park membership quite cheap to maintain the parks definitely worth it.

This park rocks. Usually there aren’t many people here. New parking lot is nice.

Beautiful scenes, birds galore. Too bad it’s so close to the highway and city noise.

Lots of trails closed for restoration

more on easy side than moderate, nice trail, nice ohio river overlook

this trail has spectacular views if you hike in using the main trail and just retrace your steps back out. if you hike the loops, the rest of the loop is kind of anticlimactic, pretty strenuous and in some places not well marked.

Amazing views!! Clean trail and well marked. Will definitely be back!

Absolutely stunning views! I have brought my one year old and dog here with no worries.

A few trails need to be updated but overall a great park!

One of my all times favorites. Loved his hike. It was challenging and the views were splendid.

Trail runs along the ridge so there are sights and drop offs on both sides of the trail. We enjoyed the views so much we hiked out the same way rather than taking the loop. Breath taking views. Highly recommended.

As good as it gets for views of the Gorge

Camped here with my son (7y/o) for the first time. We stayed the path of Auxier Ridge 204 and stopped off at the first unmarked trail just passed the 202 and 204 junction; you will have to cross over a couple of downed trees but the camp area was big. ground was made of mostly dirt and leaves but again, the area is pretty open. The site sits elevated so come fall and winter, I'm sure the view will be amazing. we hiked the rest of our trail in the morning to the point of the stairs just overseeing courthouse rock. my suggestion; travel light and enjoy the views! take it in!

Saw my first rufous sided towhee on the Open field part of the hike. There was a group of them hanging out in a vine covered tree. They weren't shy, but finally got fed up with my watching them. Great day for seeing pollinators of all kinds gather the last remains of nectar.

Great park to walk

This trail is great if you have small children. I've been on this trail before but I stayed up high on the trials. Today we stayed low in the shallow creek bed. We took it all the way down and from the distance could see a small pool like area. Got down there and it was mill creek as far as the eye could see both ways!!! It's shallow enough at the point to walk across. Came to the waist of my 6yr old! Bring a change of clothes if you plan to take the creek bed down to the larger creek.

This is walking trail. Too bad its asphalt. I wore a hole in my vibram soles. Weekend mornings are crowded with packs of runners. And unfortunately, bikes are allowed which make it hazardous for everyone. Combined with the Gorge trail I get about 3.5 miles. I come here a lot because it's the longest trail closest to my home.

Breath taking

This was my favorite "on the map" trail I hiked at RRG on my recent solo exploration trip! I did not hike it as an out and back trail, I continued on and hiked the long loop. The Auxier Trail itself provides the most amazing lookouts for the entire trip out to Courthouse Rock. It had the best views and had such a different feel than other trails. You walk along the ridge line and feel up in the sky with vultures soaring right above. Before you hit Courthouse Rock, you come to an amazing cliff overlook and (with caution) can explore an open cliff line with an intense drop off. This was by far my favorite trail from my first trip!

Great trail! Crosses over the creek several times. My dog and kids love this trail!

Beautiful views the whole way! Easy hike with only a few steep spots. Just be aware that there is very little shade and you really are walking on top of a cliff, so be careful of dogs and kids!

Nice semi loop partly through forest and partly through meadow. The short western loop has been closed for years due to storm damage. The longer eastern loop features some farm relics and a scenic Ohio River overlook. On the easier side of moderate due to the fairly flat terrain. Overall, possibly the best hike in the Hamilton County Park District.

great hard surface trail for the novice hiker. my five year old nephew did the entire 2.6 mile and loved going on an adventure.

Did this as a loop - Auxier Ridge and Courthouse Rock. Great views and vistas up to Courthouse Rock. Then you want to take trail 202 to make the loop. There is a sign off to the left and left again. Loop part isn't very well marked or kept. Also pretty strenuous and good workout. Fortunately, the gps on this app got us where we needed to be. If you don't take the loop, you end up waking the old Tunnel Road. Not my favorite option.

A great quick hike after work. The trail is shaded and winds around with tons of foliage.

Spectacular views! I take all my first-time-to-the-Gorge friends here! It really shows the scope of the Red If you just do it as an out and back, it could be considered easy. As a loop, it's more in the moderate zone.
