The trail itself was a nice wooded trail. Enough ups and downs to give you a workout. I gave it 3 stars vs 5 because once you get on the trail they are VERY poorly marked. We started on the Cedar trail, note there were NO G markings. The only markings we saw were L, E and F. We talked to several folks once we got back to the car and they all said the same thing. Once they got back to the road they followed it to their car since they could trust the trail markings. This is a shame since this place has so much to offer hikers.

My wife, son, and I headed out to do this trail today as our first local-Cincinnati hike after discovering AllTrails. The distance and altitude looked fair for us, and it was, but the trails were not marked very well at all. The beginning portion is all good, aside from the fact that you technically start at Trailhead H and not G, as the name would suggest. The early portion all followed the route nearly perfectly but we had a lot of issues identifying the balance of the trail once you cross of the Trail Ridge Rd. We never actually ended up on the correct course. By the time we tried 3 different routes, we just stuck on the one we were on and came out at a clearing on Furnas Ridge Rd. That being said, the quality of the trail was outstanding but even a GPS guided route was extremely difficult to follow, even zoomed all the way in. As they say, there's no wrong turns on a good hike, but this one, as shown, is quite difficult to follow.
