Update

Good trail with wide doubletrack and some singletrack near the margins of the Little Miami River

Chris Davis

Overview

Open daylight hours only.
This trail winds from a wide paved path (multiple intersections on the inside loop) to doubletrack on an old roadbed to singletrack up a nice grade to rejoin the paved running paths.
Features: Birding — Fall Colors — River/Creek — Views — Wildlife

Need to Know

Runners can continue on past the roadbed to the south/east toward the intersection of Kings Mills Road and continue on to see the old King's Powder Factory.

Runner Notes

Plenty of area for a good run, though the terrain is susceptible to being very slick in times of rain or shortly after.

Description

Start off near the "Quilt Barn" then continue past a small pond full of frogs behind the old mansion; then you branch off near the archery range to head down the hill towards the Little Miami River. On the path down, you'll discover abandoned structures such as an old milk house, and once near the river, you'll come across the remains of old industry located along the Little Miami.

Flora & Fauna

Ferns, hardwood trees of all manner, bird including at least two different kinds of woodpeckers (downy and red bellied), deer, blue heron, and numerous frogs!

History & Background

The park was once part of the larger estate belonging to the King Mansion (named after the mill owner Ahimaaz King) and has several abandoned building foundations and remains of that industry on the trails.
