Very nice. First half of the trail is relatively flat. We hiked out to the second Ohio River lookout and then back.

Nice easy short walk through the woods. Well-maintained path and a fun little adventure I recommend!

It was nice, I took my dog around the various loops that lead off the main trail. All of the paths lead to the main one, so don't get nervous if you feel like you've followed a smaller, more hidden path.

Great for a day hike, the waypoints are very interesting

Nicely maintained trail with nice views along the way

Well maintained. Gravel path with mild grades. Nice overlook over the valley at the end.

Moderate trail with various overlooks of the Oxbow wetlands and Ohio River. Best in the spring before sunset.

Great trail with a couple overlooks of the Ohio River. One strenuous hill in the middle but otherwise very easy.

amazing view!

View was great, not hilly

Great local trail that is family-friendly. There are lots of pawpaws growing here. The scenery is best if hiked in the fall and winter but you can still view the Ohio and Great Miami Rivers.

Relative to what's available in the Cincinnati area, when it comes to hiking, it's a scenic trail. Starts out with a moderate uphill then proceeds along a ridge with views of the Great Miami and Ohio Rivers at the end. The trail is a gravel and dirt mixture and is about six feet wide, so no need to get covered in spiderwebs or poison ivy :) Also, this trail isn't as inundated with invasive flora, such as honeysuckle, as most of the other trails in the area. For me, it makes it more pleasurable. Plenty of old growth.

Lastly, keep your eyes open for Bald Eagles! I've only seen them in the wild once, and it was at Shawnee Lookout.

Fun short hike kid friendly on the way out from the river view look carefully for the off beat trail on the right and follow it for the cache

As the overview states, this trail is well maintained. It is an easy hike with a few hills. You are in the woods the whole time but have some great views of the Ohio river. Unfortunately, the invasive honeysuckle is taking over an otherwise great view of the woods. Along most of the trail the tall canopy of hardwoods allow you to see some wildlife (deer, owls, and such). This is a great walk for families.
