7.73 mile loop according to my GPS watch.
Saw a huge black snake in a tree along the path.
Overall great pretty easy hike.

A great trail if you're just getting into hiking. I would rate it easy to moderate. The trail is well marked and well kept.

From a trail running/hiking perspective, it's a nice trail with a mix of steep climbs and flats. There is plenty to see and little unmarked trails to explore while in the woods portion. Mud doesn't bother me; however, if it bothers you and it's rained recently it will be extremely muddy in spots. I ran it on Monday, April 10th and it has some fairly muddy spots from the rain last week. Outside of that, the grass portions aren't great but the woods portion is excellent and has some really cool views along the way! I would highly recommend this trail but if it's your first time running/hiking, I would recommend building up to this one but it's worth it when you do! Lastly, wear a hat, especially since you'll be in the woods, under trees, etc! Happy Exploring!

Nice hike with old growth forest. Taxing at times but also has a few long stretches of flat path. Closer to 7 miles but well worth a hike.

did 7.5 miles on the Orange trail from visitor center to the Dam and back. Covered the yellow and blue trails as well. Except 2-3 short sections with 45+ degrees incline (which gave a good workout), the rest was easy to moderate difficulty.

Fun trail, moderate to easy difficulty. Went counter clock wise, more challenging part at beginning. Used blue/yellow detour to avoid low lying area, this is marked both directions. Still very muddy in places. Trail is well marked, easy to follow.

First time visiting this park. Completed a slightly shorter version of the hike - yellow, silver and part of orange for about 5 miles. Trail ranges from very flat to some steep inclines. I'm relatively new to hiking in Southwest Ohio and this has been one of the better places I've been to so far. Trails are very well marked. I really enjoyed this place and plan to visit again.
