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.
