Description [Suggest Changes]

The parking lot is in the center of the ten color coded trails. There are many hiking options at the Cincinnati Nature Center for all ages, but the Perimeter Loop is a long route not suited for casual hikers.

Most of the trail winds through eastern deciduous forest but there are sections in open fields and meadows.
