  • I had time for only a short hike so chose the Narrows trail. A half mile in each direction, it goes by rapids in a gorge deep enough to be noteworthy. Mostly level trail, no significant altitude gains...  more »
  • Trails are well taken care of. A park ranger is in the visitor center on Sunday afternoons which is very nice. This offers clean restrooms and drinking fountains. The trails go to Clifton Gorge and on...  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.
