A medium difficulty trail, not for the faint of heart...! A great trail for dogs and hiking enthusiasts. It has seen several bad windstorms in the decade or so that I've been there. One of the staircases still closed due to the last storm.

Saw my first rufous sided towhee on the Open field part of the hike. There was a group of them hanging out in a vine covered tree. They weren't shy, but finally got fed up with my watching them. Great day for seeing pollinators of all kinds gather the last remains of nectar.

Nice semi loop partly through forest and partly through meadow. The short western loop has been closed for years due to storm damage. The longer eastern loop features some farm relics and a scenic Ohio River overlook. On the easier side of moderate due to the fairly flat terrain. Overall, possibly the best hike in the Hamilton County Park District.

A great quick hike after work. The trail is shaded and winds around with tons of foliage.

Pros- Quiet trails, nice over looks, a challenging short trail run!

Cons- no public bathroom, and narrow trails.

Short trail for a quick, ok view of the river. Decent trail but nothing noteworthy about it.

It's an alright place. Wish there was more trails and they would fix the part that had a landslide, it's been like that for years now.

Overall it's a nice little hike, well maintained and marked. Just a little too short for me to drive to it.

Great day trail with a beautiful overlook of the Ohio. Also has a nice outdoor wedding area to enjoy.

Very serene. Beautiful overlook of the Ohio River. Interested to come back in late spring when everything blossoms. Lots of birds to see too!!

An easy hike. Took my dog along on leash and was no problem. Perfect for an easy-going hike.

Easy hike along the trail. December is a great time here as I saw a red-bellid woodpecker, a downy woodpecker, and a few birds I didn't recognize. The trail still smells like autumn and you can easily hear critters wrestling in the leaves. It was also nice to see an old man telling his two young grandsons about how life was in his youth.
