  • 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.
  • If you are visiting Yellow Springs, this place is must! I love its scenery and beautiful gorge that you can hike/walk. I love hiking/walking and tried most of trails nearby. Hiking trail starting from Clifton Gorge to John Bryan State park is much better (change of scenery, gorge, river, trees) than other trails in John Bryan State parks.
  • Beautiful preserve! The trails are mostly easy and go along the river, both along the bank and up on the ridge, with tons of mossy rocks, little waterfalls, and gorgeous views of the water. Will definitely be coming back here later in the spring and fall for even more picturesque scenery.
  • Absolutely beautiful! The hiking isn't so bad, if you're not in shape just take the trail slow and take in all the nature. 5 stars from me! I definitely will be returning!
