Easy trail to run not very many people at the right time

This trail is beautiful, but very hard to follow. There aren’t very many trail markers and there are many break off points. Thankfully this app gives you a guide or I may have been stuck in the cold longer than anticipated

Has a really nice creek that runs through the park, not a very big park. But you can take your dog's as well.

Super easy, peaceful, and kind people everywhere. Can get very busy on nice days.

Great trail!

Best hiking trail you can get without leaving town.

We frequent this trail, the southern portion is fairly crowded but northern part especially from Morrow to Yellow Springs is relaxed and serene.

Love this trail! Great mix of hills and flat ground.

It's a nice exercise trail, not much to see other than the backs of houses. In the late fall you will see tons of squirrels getting ready for winter.

As a wheelchair user, I found it extremely easy to navigate.

Nice trail. Small obstacles around the creek but nothing major. I took my dog and had no problems. Quite a few people which is nice when hiking solo.

Nice combination of hills and level ground, meadows and forests.

This trail was beautiful to jog through, but, with it being a bike trail also, I found it to be pretty dangerous when the bikers didn't make themselves known as they approached from behind and I believe it would be more efficient if they had separate trails for jogging and bikes. There's also need for more signs for indication, because there's mini trails that lead out from the main trail to who knows where and hormonal teenagers or adults even will take advantage of that when this trail is family oriented. I spotted two today making out by the river and while the scenery is nice, it's not the place for that and it suggest that security needs to be upped. Until they try to improve this trail I'll be jogging on down another.

A nice 3+ mile loop, almost entirely shaded. A nice field in the middle, with a small pond. Lightly trafficked which is fantastic imo. Stay quiet, enjoy the sounds of nature...I walked right up next to a frog, saw a white tail deer just feet from me, and a cotton tail rabbit. This trail is now on my favorites list.

My favorite hiking spot!


Well marked, great day and beautiful walk.

Nice trail with lots of shade. Trail follows river for a bit and has some good hills. Nice outing.

Park at the bend of Runnymede Rd off of thornhill Dr and take the trail head for Houck Stream Trail. Forest type meandering trails. Great hike

Never gets remote, but is decent length and has pretty parts. Certain areas are arid and not typical Ohio woodlands. Take the black loop to the yellow, and back to the black. Its decent length.

Great community paved trail connects Iron Horse Park to larger regional trail network. Trial has multiple streets crossing so be carful of vehicles.

There are a few difficult hills but a majority of the trails are easy to run--- I would not run the hills because there are plenty of large roots. This was my first visit and there are tons of little trails that branch off the main trails! It's a beautiful park where you can enjoys the valleys and sloping scenery!

Dayton - "City of Trails". Should be "City of Closed Trails". Nothing but poorly marked detours. One detour in Dayton ran me right through a bridge construction site. I nearly wrecked my road bike because of deep sand. Another detour took me down the most horrible road I ever road on! It went right past a recycling center, nothing but broken glass on the road. I got a flat tire as a result. Was only able to ride 5 miles of trail each way from the Air Force Museum. I traveled 150 miles to ride 22. Pathetic! At least the Air Force Museum was awesome....because it is run by the Air Force and not Dayton.

Beautiful springtime flowers!

Very nice, quick, local trail. Has some beautiful deep woods areas and some small river features. The trail markings can be a tad confusing at times, but nothing a weekend hike warrior can't handle. A few interesting architectural features along the way too.

My husband and I had a great time on this hike. We saw two deer sitting in the brush as we were crossing the bridge. Trail markers are a little confusing but we managed to find our way back. The old stone chimneys were neat to photograph and the shells near the creek were great to see.
