Stone Steps Loop at Mount Airy Forest

Stone Steps Loop at Mount Airy Forest Professional Review and Guide

"This hike explores the south side of Cincinnati’s historic Mount Airy Forest. Depart the historic Oval Shelter and descend a steep hollow centered by a rocky drainage. You will drop over 300 feet.

Your climb back out includes using the Stone Steps, hand-placed limestone footings that help you negotiate your way directly up the nose of a ridge. The balance of the hike curves around rib ridges and into rocky drainages sloping off the side of Mount Airy. Numerous trail junctions add a navigational challenge to this rewarding hike that will leave you coming back to this trail haven for more hikes."

This is a nice park overall with several trails as well as wheelchair accessible tree house. The stone steps is a great way to get some cardio outdoors. Runners will go up and down them for a real workout (not me, I just hike up!) Definitely worth a visit!
