“Best hiking in the Greater Cincinnati area!”

Cincinnati Nature Center
Ranked #1 of 8 things to do in Milford

The Cincinnati Rowe Nature Center in Milford is absolutely beautiful in every season. It offers miles and miles of hiking...up and down hills, streams, ponds, meadows, gorgeous woods, and historic buildings including a log cabin. I've seen deer, chipmunks, squirrels, snakes and all kinds of birds. The Visitor Center offers some really unique items including great bird watching from the center itself, some educational displays, and great prints and knick knacks with illustrations of the great Charley Harper, the famed nature artist.

In the spring, the place was covered in yellow daffodils and yellow flowers...so pretty.
It's a good workout too and so much nicer than going to the gym.

If you don't buy an annual membership, the entry fee is a bit prohibitive.

Nevertheless, II highly recommend visiting this beautiful park.

The Cincinnati Nature Center is located about 30 minutes northwest of downtown Cincinnati near Batavia/Newtown. This nature center has 14 miles of trails (with approximately 1/2 mile of paved wheelchair accessible) which wind through various types of settings. Prairie, Young Forest, Old growth Forest, streams; all are available to see while walking on well maintained paths. Many of these trails intersect with each other which allows numerous different walks for whatever timeframe you have available. 30 minutes or two plus hours. Afterwards you can rest with coffee or a drink in their welcome center and read a bit about the area you just experienced. Parking for day visit is about $5. Individual and family memberships are available.

The nature has been pushed aside for money. All the commercial things for bringing in money have become common place, and it is now very hard to find a place to enjoy an uninterruped walk.
Dogs out number people and most are not on a leash.

My kids and I discovered this place about a year ago. The staff and volunteers here are so passionate and engaging. They are always willing to answer questions and share their knowledge. The place is beautiful and large. They have wonderful walking trails, ponds, lakes, historic buildings, a nature center, bird watching hide outs and great inexpensive programs for kids and adults. I can not say enough wonderful things. I just wish it were closer to where we live.

It's nice to have a little nature in the city. The area is beautiful, however I noticed species of plants that are not indigenous to this are. Would this be artistic license?
