Good trail. We bikes it. Nice just getting out if you want an easy ride. One very steep hill that you will need to walk your bike up the hill.

Great trail. I was here this past Friday. Got past the golf course up the hill and wound up near the new soccer field on Wooster Pike. The trail needs better markers.

Lost the trail after Kellogg & along the river. Can someone guide me & tell me if it is paved? Thank you.

The paved part of the trail is nice. But when you get to the part where it goes down to the river it is not marked. We had to spend a bit looking for where it enters the wooded area. The trail also does not follow the trail as marked here on All Trails. It is an estimate of the trail.

love it here

The area where the trails were is lovely. Lots of ivy along the paths. The trail the boys scouts had created was very nice , clearly marked, wide with stumps painted to avoid falling.
But... I got confused back in the other trails and they weren’t clearly marked at all coming to intersections with no clue which way to go. Then after traveling along a trail for some time I suddenly came upon a trail closed sign with no previous warning. There was a high bridge with guardrails missing which was dangerous and I felt a few soft spots in some of the other bridges. I found this unfortunate since it is a pretty area for hiking. I will return to see if things have changed but won’t go back if no updates have happened.

After a few mis-starts, found the trail. Good hike, decent amount of time in the woods. Wear decent shoes - trail is full of roots.

Great trails close to the city. Markings aren’t great and they are not very well maintained but a lot of mileage possible.

Beautiful trail that takes you along the banks of the Ohio River.

Love this place

Gorgeous little hike

The trail was not very well-traveled. In some areas, I didn’t even know if we were following a trail. A lot of it is right next to a well-traveled road; so not very “naturey”

9/29 - we wanted to do this trail and saw signs that most loops are closed for hunting. Big disappointment

good little trail for a family hike or a quick run. its a short trail so we ran it twice. the trail offers a very nice wooded scene and the potential to see wildlife. would recommend this trail. the trail level i feel should be rated as easy. if you are in even ok shape it may leave you wanting more. not a difficult trail but still very nice and enjoyable

Beautiful trail to hike or jog- I’d rate this more easy to moderate, in comparison to other trails- would be easy with kids, where as California nature park is rated as moderate and is much more difficult

The trail is a bit overgrown in some areas and you definitely need a map or gps application to stay on the loop. It's pretty rough with roots in some areas but overall it's a great trail considering it's in the middle of a city.

Good trail for how close it is to the city. Extremely overgrown in a lot of areas, but overall a good hike.

I think we got off trail because it was not well marked, but it was still nice. Trails are dirt trails so if has rained recently trails are pretty muddy. Dog friendly.

Bunch of small short trails, pretty easy to just keep walking through one to another. Good wild flowers, and a pretty creek.

The somewhat rugged trails make for a nice weekend hike.

I just moved to the area and assumed the trails at this park would be paved but they’re not. I was happy to find something so close but so natural. It’s beautiful here. Lots of wildflowers, fungi and a small little water fall! I’m a pretty avid hiking and got a little lost since the trails aren’t clearly marked (on trail D) . There were two different times I came to an intersection and had to just guess which trail to take. It not that rural so it’s fine but they should be marked. The two separate people I came across had dogs, not on a leash. Which isn’t a huge deal if they stay on the trail but 1) it’s the law and 2) I’m trying to train my rescue pup to ignore other dogs and be obedient on a leash and it’s hard to do when dogs come up to her. I also wore Tevas since I assumed it would be a very easy, paved hike. Definitely wear boats if it’s wet like it was today!

Nice wide trail, in good shape. Mostly gravel, some spots dirt and some spots grass. Part of trail closed due to a bridge being fixed
