A good choice for a family hike, but not as much for a nature enthusiast. The trails are scenic and well marked but much of it is covered in gravel. I guess this helps with drainage and erosion control, but I'd rather a little mud than the constant noise of rocks grinding under my feet. Add in the $11 admission fee for my dog and I, and the overall experience was just average.

Very well kept trails, there are multiple looped trails to take that include parts of this loop trail

Red Bird and Fern trails offer decent hill climbs with changing terrain. The perimeter is the way to go. Bought membership and made this a fixture of training.

The perimeter trail is 8.4 miles, plus mileage to get to trail. Cincy Nature Center is very busy, but not as many people on the perimeter trail. Trails are well marked and easy to follow. Some up and downs make this trail moderate. There is a staircase (194 steps) at about the mid point of the loop. Going counter clockwise will have you going up the stairs.
