Owner description: Suburban forest full of dirt trails great for running and hiking.

Fantastic park within the city limits. Several miles of hiking trails (some well traversed, some more remote), well maintained disc golf course, picnic area's, and playgrounds are all present here. Yes, like most urban parks, you take certain risks at night but I have yet to have one issue here during the daytime. Lots of couples, families, and pets around unless you get a few miles into a more secluded trail.

A must visit for any park/trail enthusiast. Again, do not expect a Red River Gorge or an East Fork like atmosphere. This is a city park, but one of the best around Cincinnati. If you enjoy Ault Park, you will enjoy this.

This place is deserted out on the so called trails. They are all in disrepair and need a lot of work, they should let the local Mountain Bikers fix this place up and then watch the number of proper park users will explode. Exhibit A is Mitchell Memorial Forest and exhibit B is Devou both places have seen a huge influx of riders, walkers and trail runners do to the free work of the local mountain bike community.

My friends had their wedding here a little over a year ago and it was such a beautiful location for a fall wedding! I have enjoyed walking the trails and think its a lovely park. There is bow hunting allowed during deer season though, so keep an eye out for signs marking certain trails closed.

A large forested area with trails and a perfectly manicured arboretum the goes on forever. This is a great example of an urban FOREST. It's one of the reasons we love Cincinnati--many forests in the cities core but none so beautiful as Mt. Airy.

When I was a kid in the 70s the was my playground. Awesome trails and creeks, but times ave changed. Gang turf wars and pervs looking for prey make this pace unsafe for the naive and unarmed. Very sad.
