Afternoon Trek - Devou Park Back Country Bike/Hike Trails: Visiting Ohio, staying in Cincinnati - Started out at trail head near (old) baseball diamond at border of Covington, Ludlow, KY. From trail head went up “incinerator.” Crossed over on “Bates-Coombs Loop.” After loop, went back to “Incinerator.” From there, all the way up to “Pigs Tail;” then, crossed-over on to “Back Bowl” then, down on “Trail of Devou-tion.” “Devou-tion” was a difficult path compared to the other ones I took (also, “one-way”). Ended trek pretty much where I started. The old incinerator is pretty cool - nice graffiti. So is the older train trestle bridge. The trails are well-maintained, in good condition. Bikers were very courteous. Few if any bikers / hikers day of my visit. Well-worth a visit if you’re not from here...

Started out at trail head for John Volz Nature Trail in the upper part of Devou Park in Covington, KY. Trail is very pretty, easy to navigate until you reach area where cement walking path, steps start. There, you may encounter some low-hanging overgrowth, deteriorating steps. Going down path is easy (fair slope); going up seems harder (incline). Kind of wandered around a lot (looking at path on AllTrails); just wanted to get by band shell, see some of parks pretty spots like lookout point. Friend has niece who paints rocks; left one on trail (see photo). Few if hikers or even walkers day of my visit. Well-worth a visit if you’re not from here...

The day I visited it was VERY muddy and slippery - so much that it limited my ability to enjoy the hike. We also thought trail signs were a bit confusing.

Nice trails. Definitely more suited for trail bikes but signs offer requirements to give way to hikers. Everyone very courteous on trails. Found myself standing aside with my dog in patches of poison ivy quite often. I'm not allergic but my son is so my dog got a bath that night. Something to keep in mind. Long socks if you are allergic.
