I love to plan family travel adventures with our four kids. Encouraging time in nature, National Parks travel, backpacking and hiking are my passions and I love to write about them.


  • Absolutely love this article, I have been living in Cincinnati for 2 years and have major shin splints so I have been looking for parks to run at with grass/gravel paths. This article helped a ton thank you!

  • I’ve explored so many new places thanks to this list! I love the descriptions you give and the photos are great! Just wanted to say thanks 🙂

  • This is wonderful!!! I just got a new job and moved to Cinci 2 weeks ago and am very excited to check out these running trails! Thank you so much!

  • Great info! Thanks for posting, I was getting very tired of running in circles in my neighborhood…

  • I have always had a hard time finding fun places to run! Not any more! I’ll use these every day in the fall and spring! Thanks a million!

  • I loved seeing all the wonderful places you ran but am disappointed that they are all on the east side of Cincinnati. I am a Westsider and love to try new places for my runs. Miami Whitewater Forest is a favorite of mine with an outer loop of 7.8 and inner loop of 1.4! I also really like Fernbank Park which runs along the Ohio River in Sayler Park.

  • I’m part of a group doing a September Challenge to walk or run at least 1 mile a day. Most of us are in Cincinnati/Northern KY so I shared with all 60 of them tonight! Thanks for writing this up!

  • Great list if you want to run somewhere on the east side of town. Will definitely check out Devou Park

  • Thanks for posting – I’m a brand new runner looking for good places to run, so this post was perfect! I also appreciated your safety comments – definitely one of the key things I’m looking for. Beautiful photos too, really gives the feel of each location.

  • What an AWESOME personal challenge! I hate getting in ruts and often sign up for races to give myself a goal to get ready for! Good job! Love the post!!
