Step out of southwestern Ohio and into the scenic views of John Bryan State Park. Pittsburg--Cincinnati Stage Coach and South Gorge Trails offer incredible views of the gorge and Little Miami River, plenty of songbirds, and an array of wildflowers. Definitely bring tree, wildflower, and bird identification books for this hike. More than 100 species of trees and shrubs and more than 340 species of wildflowers call this area home! In spring, snow trillium, Virginia bluebell, bellwort, wild ginger, Dutchman's breeches, jack-in-the-pulpit, and wild columbine decorate the dolomite outcrops. Spring is best for birdwatchers and wildflower enthusiasts. With great trails and incredible views, John Bryan State Park is a hidden gem.

I might enjoy this trail @ a different time of the year, but after I encountered a bee's hive in a tree directly on the trail, poison ivy and a tick, I turned back. This trail wasn't for me!
