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.

I also enjoyed this ride. The day was beautiful about three days ago.

Sorry that Paul did not enjoy this trail. We did . I thought it was cool to follow the river. The day was beautiful and so was some of the scenery.

Why are paved bike paths included in trails. I am a trail runner who wants to run on unpaved trails. I wish we had more of these. The bike paths we have in this area are very boring. Yes they are long, but they are also very straight because they were converted from railroads. We do have a great connector near me in Miamisburg - Medlar and that is very nice. Now I wish we could put a nice dirt trail to run on. Running on dirt is great for knees, hips, etc

Giselle, my 2 year old and I had a great time hiking over to the creek where she threw rocks in!

I love this trail. The out and back trail is perfect for a short visit with Mother Nature and there are plenty of things to marvel at.

I always eat my lunch at the river about half way through the barn trail. The entrance can get a little muddy and mosquito-y but once you get into the thick of the woods, you won't be disappointed.

Really looking forward to having time to hike all the bigger loop trails sometime soon.

This is my favorite trail for trail running, great for hiking too. There are markers and maps throughout the trail system.

One of my favorite local hikes. Generally not as well traveled as others so can be peaceful. Great for cross country skiing if and when we get snow.
