Paved trail around the lake is nice, but there are places where the asphalt is cracked and some repaving is needed. They also need to repaint the yellow line on the center of the trail that the bicyclists need to keep to the right when passing people coming the other way. It is a nice walk around the lake, especially in the morning!

decent mostly flat no real challenges but nice scenery and environment. nice free walk after park membership quite cheap to maintain the parks definitely worth it.

Beautiful scenes, birds galore. Too bad it’s so close to the highway and city noise.

This is walking trail. Too bad its asphalt. I wore a hole in my vibram soles. Weekend mornings are crowded with packs of runners. And unfortunately, bikes are allowed which make it hazardous for everyone. Combined with the Gorge trail I get about 3.5 miles. I come here a lot because it's the longest trail closest to my home.

great hard surface trail for the novice hiker. my five year old nephew did the entire 2.6 mile and loved going on an adventure.

My family loves this trail. Easy to get to, well maintained, and it is beautiful all year round.

All you could really want from an easy walk through the woods of moderate length. Great views of the lake, a creek, waterfalls and most of the walk is in the forest. Depending of whether you include the gorge path, the loop varies from about 3 to 4 miles all on a paved walking/biking path. 3 stars because even though it's a very nice walk it's no hike through the mountains.

I hiked the Gorge Trail today. Fall is upon us and it was a nice hike. Here is a short video I made:

I have been to Sharon Woods numerous times and hiked all of the trails multiple times. This is my favorite park in the Great Parks of Hamilton County.

More asphalt then trails but very well maintained. Lots of areas that are shaded. There is a shirt trail that passes the falls and follows the creek. Very peaceful. I don't quite agree with the distance they post - it's approx 6 miles on the actual trails. The other 2.2 is really the golf cart paths on the golf course.

very nice trail. Well maintained and easy to navigate. popular in the mornings with runners, I passed a dozen over the 4.5 miles. nearly all paved with about .75 on packed gravel.

Decent trail, wear your sandals or tennis shoes. Has a work out circuit, which is neat. You are barely in the woods, walk past several homes and cars passing by.
Very busy.

Mostly paved, might be better for bikes and strollers. Don't take your stroller down the gorge trail.

Not really our bag, you aren't really in the woods. It's a nice park though. Expect to see photographers doing family photo shoots.

Great trail most of which is paved but add the gorge trail for some great views and extra steps. Bring your dog along as they will enjoy the easy walk.

Great short hike, with creek access and fossil hunting. Has a couple waterfalls too! You can take the trail from the lower part of Sharon Woods up to the lake and boathouse.
