Re: Life: Parks around the Tri-State
We've done the Hamilton County winter hikes for about 8-9 years so we've walked about every trail in the Hamilton Co. parks.
I love that place at Shawnee Lookout you mentioned. I think that's the Miami Fort trial. Off in the other direction is the Little Turtle trail which is cool too.
Miami Whitewater has some nice trails. Out east of town is Woodland Mound which has some nice scenic overlooks of the Ohio River Valley. The Hedgeapple trail there is a good one. Glenwood Gardens over by GE is a jewel of a park. Withrow Nature Preserve is good too. And Winton Woods and Sharon Woods are sturdy standbys.
One other one that is interesting is Cedar Bog up by Urbana. It has a raised walkway through ther bog and fen and is very interesting.
And through SE and SW Ohio are some cool Indian mound trails. One summer, I think we went to everyone out there. Serpent Mound and Davis Memorial stick in my mind.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall
All you have to do is call...
