The Great Miami River bisects this park from north to south and is popular with paddlers. A fun trip is to set up camp here, drive upriver, then float back to the park to spend the night. You can make much the same trip parallel to the water using the bikeway. It’s 7 miles of paved pathway open to hikers, skaters, and bicyclists. There are points of interest along its length. Start at the north end of the bikeway and you can explore what used to be Tadmor, once the county’s busiest community before being hit by hard times and then being wiped out by flood. Around the Taylorsville Dam at the bikeway’s midpoint stand remnants of Miami-Erie Canal.

Great trails of varying lengths starting from the East entrance. The portion along the river of the orange trail is very scenic, and the elevation changes provide a moderate level of difficulty for those up to a challenge. I like trail running, and this is my favorite trail to cover in the area. You'll usually run across a few other people hiking the trail, and for the most part it is single file width, but it isn't too big of a problem because it is never overcrowded in my experience. Watch out for muddy segments with slippery areas and rock steps.
