“A mile-long trail that climbs out of the Little Miami river valley and follows along a ridgeline.

The trailhead is accessed from the Little Miami Scenic Trail (a paved bike trail). From the bike trail intersecting Route 350, head north about .75 mile. You'll find the trailhead a little before the Jeremiah Morrow Interstate 71 bridge high above you. Watch for the white trail marker on a tree just after crossing a short bridge.
You'll enter a creek valley, which you'll wander along, crossing the creek three times (usually mostly dry) along the way. The trail will eventually climb out of the valley. At the top of the hill, you'll hang right at the cabin; you'll probably need to hop a rope.
Follow the dirt road, staying to the right. There are two side roads that lead into a camp belonging to King's Domain (private); do not enter these. Instead, follow the white blazes, which will lead you to the top of a ridge line. You'll follow along this ridge line for the rest of the journey. In the fall/winter, there is a good view of the I-71 bridge.
The trail eventually switchbacks its way down the other side of the ridge. The remaining portion of the trail is on flat singletrack through the woods until you pop out onto the King's Domain driveway. To return to the bike trail, turn right and take the drive to Route 350 and go right on 350 in about 100 feet.
