I grew up going to this park. It's still as beautiful now as it was then. Great place to have family reunions and cookouts.

Ran the Chocolate 5K in the park. Park was clean and quiet, looked like a great place to hike. Facilities were still closed for the season, but they looked they were well kept and clean.

Fantastic park within the city limits. Several miles of hiking trails (some well traversed, some more remote), well maintained disc golf course, picnic area's, and playgrounds are all present here. Yes, like most urban parks, you take certain risks at night but I have yet to have one issue here during the daytime. Lots of couples, families, and pets around... More

This place is deserted out on the so called trails. They are all in disrepair and need a lot of work, they should let the local Mountain Bikers fix this place up and then watch the number of proper park users will explode. Exhibit A is Mitchell Memorial Forest and exhibit B is Devou both places have seen a huge... More

My friends had their wedding here a little over a year ago and it was such a beautiful location for a fall wedding! I have enjoyed walking the trails and think its a lovely park. There is bow hunting allowed during deer season though, so keep an eye out for signs marking certain trails closed.

A large forested area with trails and a perfectly manicured arboretum the goes on forever. This is a great example of an urban FOREST. It's one of the reasons we love Cincinnati--many forests in the cities core but none so beautiful as Mt. Airy.

When I was a kid in the 70s the was my playground. Awesome trails and creeks, but times ave changed. Gang turf wars and pervs looking for prey make this pace unsafe for the naive and unarmed. Very sad.

Huge park with lots of trails; not huge variety though. Try to include the steps in your hike. Don't go at night. WHile the park is serene and huge, it is still an urban park and you need to be smart about safety when darkness falls!
