The parking lot is in the center of the ten color coded trails. There are many running options at the Cincinnati Nature Center for all ages, but the Perimeter Loop is a long route not suited for casual runners.
Most of the trail winds through eastern deciduous forest but there are sections in open fields and meadows.
