More open space than woods. Paved, which is usually not my first choice. Great for when the ground is soggy. I think I'll do this again in summer to see how it looks then. Flat, which is good if you haven't been hiking in a while.

RunningGreat!

Excellent trail, well paved with blacktop, perfect for walking, running and biking. Dog friendly. However be cautious of any potential rain if you decide to walk or run on this trail. Once your out, you’re out far!

I did the outer loop today and loved it! I had the trail mostly to myself, having passed only 3-4 people the entire time. I’ll definitely be visiting again!

Great biking trail. Some hills, couple bridges across the creek, and it passes by bird habitat and wild flower areas.

Nice, paved and mostly flat trail. A good 2.5 hours brisk walking. Lots of birds. Long section in the middle with little shade so best not to do on a very hot day. We walked on a bright, crisp day. Perfect for this trail. Trail is very well-maintained.

Not normally the type of trail that I would give 5 stars, but I really loved walking this trail for some reason. Except for the length, it's really not a challenging trail. The trail is long, but it passes through a really good mix of beautiful Ohio scenery.

This is one of my favorite trails. I’ve walked, biked, and roller-skated all over this trail. It has a variety of beautiful sights. Most of the trail is well paved (which is important to look out for as a roller skater). I often see park employees blowing debris off the trail, so I can tell they keep it well maintained. This trail goes along a creek, and through forests, corn fields, wetlands, and wildflower fields. I often see a lot of animals from bunnies, beavers, deer, and raccoons. There are also toads, butterflies, and wooly worms all over. There are a few hills, but it’s a great workout. I can’t say enough great things about this trail and Miami Whitewater.

Very well maintained. Two sources of drinking water in season at about 1.5 mile and 5.5 mile marks.
