Great day for a walk in the park! This is a very pleasant place to go for a walk. You stroll along a scenic stretch of the Little Miami River. An invasive species of flower (lesser celandine) was in bloom. It looks very pretty but it chokes out everything that should be growing there.

4ish miles of river and big woods trails. some great ups and downs for cardio, but can get pretty muddy along the river trail during spring and fall. a few gems along the paths include the remains of a farmhouse fireplace, an apiary and birds of prey refuge, and a sugar shack educational area. not heavily traveled, mostly folk with dogs. beautiful all year long, and great for trail running on a variety of terrains and inclines.

Tubbing down the river to the rope swings and the kids had a blast and the adults relaxed in their tubes so enjoyable
