Off of Colerain, turn in to Mt. Airy Forest Park. Take an immediate left. Keep going down the road past the playground until you reach a round about( obviously go right ). Pull your car over on the side of the road where the restrooms are and right next to them you will see a pole that reads Beechwood Trail. That marks the trail. Enjoy!

Great trail to run. Very difficult to run, lots of rocks and roots. Got lost a few times. This app was very useful to fin my way. Watch out for the stone steps.

A good bit of the trail was cut off due to hunting, but the trail portion I was allowed to hike was beautiful if not a little muddy from recent rains.

I managed to hike about 3 miles there today. A lot of the trails were closed due to hunting today. I’ll definitely visit again.

Mt. Airy is a great park to visit, but the trails could really use some work.The trail markers are baffling, and there doesn't seem to be a good map available. Some areas of the forest have beautiful old beech trees, but other parts are so choked with honeysuckle that you can't see more than 15 feet off the trail, and Japanese stilt grass has overgrown a lot of the trail. The stone steps are amazing, but the honeysuckle really needs to be cut away or they will soon be impassable.

Nice trails for an urban park

Nice trail so near downtown! Not marked real well so recommend you look at the parks website to know which trails to take in order to get the full loop

Beautiful nature area in Mt. Airy, slick when wet though, fairly dangerous.

The hike was beautiful but went the wrong way several times—glad I had this app (until my phone died)

Just finished a 2 mile hike (roughly), starting at "G" and connecting to "H". Not heavily travelled and plenty of time to be alone in the woods. Was able to take my time and let my dog roam a bit in the dry creek beds. Very quiet as you go further in the woods, which was a pleasant surprise (Colerain Ave isn't that far away). Nice elevation changes and definitely had a good sweat when I was done. This was my first time there and I will definitely be back.

Can get lost easily but very scenic given the suburban location. Stairs a great cardio workout.

Although it was nice and shaded for the summer months, the trails were poorly marked. We got lost a few times and even got to a point where this map told us to go one way but that way didn't exist.

Fun and I would like it in summer when all the leaves come out.

Decent inner city trail. Tons of different routes to take to extend your hike. Some parts were pretty muddy although it hadnt rained that much lately and some parts were rather narrow, but all in all not bad for being in cincy and close.

Very nice scenery but very trafficked most of the way.

It was very fun and semi-difficult trail!

Lovely hike but very muddy as it had rained recently. I cannot wait to explore this park in the springtime. Trails ranged from easy to some pretty difficult hills. Also had an awesome tree house which is worth checking out. Beautiful park overall.

We went on a Saturday. We took my teenage son and his GF. We started at the tree house, which was easy to find. The dirt trails were easy to navigate, albeit very narrow in certain areas. The creek beds were completely dried up (it would have been lovely with water flowing). We started easily enough. The trails are marked, but somehow we ended up on multiple trails - started on E, ended up on H, which literally took us through the frisbee golf course. Not sure what that's about. We ended up on K and J somehow. We took a turn that led us on, what I'm assuming was a horse trail (there was a LOT of horse poop on the trail). It was adjacent to a main road, which you could see from the forest. That trail ended toward the road so we turned back around and my son found a shortcut to get back on a main trail. All in all it was a nice hike; the forest is very nice, it wasn't crowded at all, we saw some beautiful wild flowers. It would have been helpful to get a map (but we didn't).

I hiked this back in 2014. The tree house was pretty cool but showed heavy damage from people and security cameras now watching the site. the trail itself was poorly marked and came out at several different places. but overall its a beautiful area with some wildlife.

One of my favorite hikes in Cincy! The trails are not marked not the best but is part of the fun! However they close off part of it for hunting season, so in that case getting lost isn't great! I'll go back in the summer!

Trail was pretty nice just a bit muddy.

I enjoyed my hike here, however I will likely not come back. Trailheads are difficult to find and the trails are really poorly marked. Multiple times I came across a fork in the trail w the marker not showing the trail I was on, or telling me I could go both ways. Luckily, most trails lead right back into the camping areas so you can find your way back either way. The trails are fairly easy to walk, I didn't come across any intense elevation changes. Where this trail tells you to start is right by the F trail, which is right behind the area marker. It is not five miles though.

Wonderful trail. They have hills, steams and some built in steps. You'll also find bridges over the creek bed. Nature at its best. Many places to park, sit and eat a snack.
