“Nice diversion for an hour or all day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

This is a great location just outside Yellow Springs. You can take a quick hike along the rim, down the river or spend all day here. Two different parking areas that start you at different places along the hiking routes. The maps and information on their website are great to help you plan out your level of effort. Our young kids had no trouble hiking here too because the trails were very well maintained, even considering recent rain.

“Hope skip and a jump from Youngs Jersey dairy - easy fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

Loved the ease of trail footings. And the sights along the gorge. 10 minutes or 3 hours, something for everyone.

Great place to wander. You can walk along the gorge rim or follow the path along the river - both beautiful!

“If you are an outdoors person, you are in for a real treat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Clifton Gorge Nature Preserve is a short drive from Yellow Springs. Clifton Gorge Nature Preserve is unique because of the rugged terrain and opportunity for “mountain experience” in Ohio. The hiking is absolutely delightful for folks of all ages, and we enjoy Clifton Gorge Nature Preserve during all seasons.

We especially enjoy the winter snow season. Clifton Gorge Nature Preserve is a perfect family event, date event, or a solo event. If you are an outdoors person, you are in for a real treat.

Nearby is the Clifton Mills rustic restaurants, and the several restaurants of Yellow Springs.
