Great wooded trails, not crowded. Convenient canoe put-in for the Little Miami River within an easy float trip to a number of take-outs.

Wow! Running along the river on flat trails. Hill and stair climbs also available. Well maintained and spectacular in the spring. There is also a nature center, camping and a canoe launch for the Little Miami River.

This is a very nice park for hiking. You can bring the kids and dogs. It has a small nature center and a few birds in re-hab.
