Cowan Lake State Park Hike Professional Review and Guide
"Have you ever seen a mass of floating lotus blooms? That is one highlight from this relatively short hike that combines two nature trails at Cowan Lake State Park, east of Cincinnati. While most other park visitors are on the lake, you can be one of the few traveling through hilly woods to reach a high bluff overlooking upper Cowan Creek embayment. Enjoy views of the slender still water before heading down to the lake itself, where water plants stretch along Cowan Creek. Your return route takes you into more hilly woods, enhanced by a multilevel wooden staircase."
