Enjoyed Nice winter Hike
Cures Cabin Fever....

Awesome trail for a beginner or advanced hiker. I recommend a hiking stick.

Easy, flat, gravel trail for a nice dog walk or trail run. There is a spot with a dip in the trail where a very small stream runs through.

Don't let anyone tell you differently-this trail is challenging. Given, I took it after a day of continued drizzle. The trails are wet and slippery when damp - wear good hiking boots. Expect to step and climb over 60-70 felled large trees. Expect trails to have roots, rocks, sudden elevation changes - pay attention to placement of every step. In the growing season, undergrowth is lush and encroaches on the trail. If you don't like to be touched by all the vegetation, wear long sleeves and pants. There are bugs.

If you're like me and you're fine with all of the above, this trail is for you. Additional bonuses, there is no one else on the trail. I was surprised for such a heavily populated area to not see another person at all. The rain earlier in the day could have chased the people away or the fact that it's a Monday- but still.

I have to take the trail again because I forgot to record until I was 1/2 a mile in. Happy Hiking!

A lot of unmarked trails. Needs a map of the marked trails so we know where we are going. Enjoyed the hike.

Poorly marked, and overgrown.

getting to the tracks was a bit tricky and the map wasnt complete. it had alot of unmarked trails. other than that was an awesome hike. we'll definitely go again.

I enjoy the trails but wish other hikers would follow the leash laws.

Wonderful wooded escape from the city life feel. I would say that this is nowhere near difficult. I would rate this as easy to moderate (if that). I live a couple streets away so I frequent the area quite often. Ault park is a highlight in the city of Cincinnati. Highly recommend

This perimeter trail is a really nice hike for an urban area. The majority of the trail is in the forest, though there is some meadow and a little pavement. Some of the trail is heavily trafficked, but the majority of it is not. It can get quite muddy if it's rained recently. I really enjoy this hike within the city.

Very beautiful place to hike, the old railroad track bridge is well worth seeing. lots of little bridges and cool stone and wooden steps. Many photo ops.

Such a beautiful park!! After your hike plenty of room to space out, lay in the grass, kick the soccer ball around and walk through please ty of gardens.
A huge space to adventure here, and the views from the train tracks are so cool

Several trails with many ambiguous markers, overgrown trails, and still pretty fun. Trails are pretty trafficked (I came on a weekend) but are quite beautiful.

Beautiful trails, breathtaking views, some were pretty advanced for beginners but still doable

Decent hike. Unfortunately there really is not any good hiking in Cincinnati. The map shows a shorter route. I took the long route, which is probably around 3 miles. Training for Mt. Elbert in Colorado so this is closest I can get to incline hiking in Cincy. I would come back though!

Incredible. I was about 10 feet from a doe with two fawns and the old railroad is an awesome sight. Great trail and great workout, I'd recommend this trail to anyone looking for a great time!

This was my boyfriend and I's first time hiking and Ault Park did not disappoint. There are all kinds of trails for your difficulty level. We connected the trails so overall I think we hiked about 3.5/4 miles. We will definitely be back.

An excellent trail inside the 275 loop in Cincy. You can interconnect the trails to make your hike much longer than 1.4 miles. Our hike was 2.5 miles and could've been extended to 4 miles easily. ..very hilly, a great workout.
