“A trail loop that is gradually sloped on one end and has stairs on the other.”

This is an offshoot loop trail that is one of many at the Cincinnati Nature Center. To access this trail you must first work your way out on the Wildflower Trail
. At the trail junction, you'll head west and cross a shallow stream that is about 30 feet wide.
The loop has been rerouted so now it is more of a lollipop loop. So once you cross the creek the old steps are now not part of the trail. You continue down the newly graveled section and on your right you will see the new way to the top. Once at the top you can take an out and back trail on the right to a couple of hammock posts. So bring a hammock and enjoy. To the left of the climb you can take the wider trail back to the bottom.
This trail is mostly wooded with some open field areas.
