Wide variety of ecosystems on 16 miles of trails. Today, I walked through the prarie section near the settlers cabin and pond surrounded by wildflowers, butterflies, birds, etc. Great place to hike.

Combine trails here & you can hike as far as you want. On this day I saw lots of wildlife - doe with fawn ( too cute), black snake, chipmunks & squirrels of course, wood chuck, piliated woodpecker, red headed woodpecker, frogs, turtles. Impossible to get lost - trails maked at each intersection. Benches, so you can sit and just relax. Once you get off the trails that surroud the gift shop, you can have some solitude.

The Cincinnati Nature Center is a beautiful oasis in the middle of creeping suburban megalopolis. It is still semi-rural around there but the area is changing rapidly. Happily the folks at the Center have continued to add land to their holdings, to further insulate the specialness of the Center. Trails are well-maintained, and the Center's lodge has educational displays and programs about wildflowers, trees, birds and other wildlife throughout the year. Deer wander freely unafraid of the human guests into their domain, for they have learned it is their home first, and humans are mere daytime guests. Approximately 50 acres of old growth forest is a prized section of the Nature Center, which is rare in any part of Ohio. For daily hikes and contemplation, the Natue Center can't be beat. I have yet to see thronging crowds there, only occasional hikers either solo or groups of two or three.
