Improvements in

Mt. Airy Forest

We are helping improve the largest park in the system.

Mt. Airy Forest is the largest Cincinnati Park with 1,459 acres. The park features miles of hiking trails, bridle trails, a multi-use mountain biking trail, a wheelchair accessible treehouse, an enclosed dog park, and a disc golf course. Our work here includes enhancements to the arboretum, new accessible pathways, improvements to the picnic areas and trails, and a new bike skills course.

The Trails

Scenic Trail
Enjoy the beauty of Mt. Airy Forest while taking a relaxing hike through the Scenic Trail. This trail is not only great for getting to know fellow club members but also to get a good work out. It’s not too hard, but it’s enough to get your heart going!

Stone Steps
If you’re after an intense cardio workout, then the Stone Steps are what you are looking for. The hike consists of a moderate walk to the base of the steps before going up the steep incline with stone steps. We finish off the hike by going downhill back to Everybody’s Treehouse. If you are an experienced hiker, or confident in your endurance, give this trail a try.
