  • The gorge itself is spectacular but don't stop there. Following the path around the overviews there is a long walk through the woods that is just beautiful  more »
  • A very beautiful place to hike and spend time together with family. Take your camera and a water bottle.  more »
  • When I lived in the Cincinnati area, this was a place I could come to and get away from the rat race for a few hours. Coming now as a visitor and hiking the trails brings back great memories. The over...  more »

  • This is a beautiful park! We have the picture to prove it! Not only does it look like we went on vacation over the weekend, but we are very close to Yellow Springs, and Glen Helen Nature Preserve. Dayton Ohio is a Great place to live and vacation!!!! Who knew?
  • It is beautiful, secluded landmark. Was confused seeing a sign posted about crime at trailhead, have never encountered(heard about) anything bad ever here. It was not there our last visit in April. Nor at John Bryan State Park, Clifton Mill, Glen Helen, or the Village of Yellow Springs have I saw any crimes. Sad if true for the area.
  • The trail provides a truly wonderful experience. The route along the river makes it more exciting. The only problem is that there are no markings for the different routes. So it's easy to get lost. Otherwise it's spot on.
  • Love the place. It was a peaceful walk with sound of moving water and birds. Didn't have to deal with dogs as they are not allowed. Trails isn't always flat so wheelchairs won't work for the entire trail. Trail is moderate at some times.
  • Get back to nature with a great hike. Water, trees, rocks, and wildlife nestled in a gorge. Gorgeous year round.
