You may think you've taken a wrong turn since you drive through a neighborhood, but it's in an unexpected place. We were thrilled with the find and loved hiking the creek rather than sticking strictly to the trails. It's small enough to not fear getting...More

A little confusing to get to, it's actually more west of 430 N Bend. The nature center was not open on Saturday, so we weren't exactly sure how long the trails were or how they connected. Yet, it was a nice hike for roughly an...More

Was a wonderful creek. There are 3 looped trails/ridges that are about a mile each but you can get a lot of hiking in. If you go down the assessable trail and follow the trail you ll go down a long flight of steps which...More

Very pretty and offers easy paths and plenty of outdoor beauty for any level of nature lover. The paths are easy enough in most areas for kids and any level of hiker or walker.

This little nature preserve is relatively small, yet it provides a good hike for all levels. The preserve covers woods that span a small gorge (or holler). The visitor center has great information. Programs can be scheduled for school groups and home schools. It's also...More

I walked those trails hundreds of times during my stay in Cincinnati. It's far enough away from traffic where the sounds of cars and horns don't disturb you. Usually, you're the only one there. I've seen plenty of wildlife, from deer, snakes, turtles and so...More

The area of the preserve is very industrial and you never think there is enough green space for the park. After you enter the park and start on the trails, you feel like you could be in the middle of a giant forest. The trails...More

We spotted a few snowdrops on our visit to this amazing park, the gift of a generous family. Acres with miles of paved walking trails through the woods and by streams, this park is a gem. Unfortunately the visitor centre was not open on the...More

The Caldwell Nature Preserve is a relatively small park. Fairly easy hiking paths through the woods. The Nature center has many Native American centered exhibits. A good school group or scouting group activity.
