Trail Description
About this trail
Currently the trail is a bit overgrown but is a good ride if you live in the area. It can be a bit confusing until you become familiar. It quickly drops into the creek bed from the start and and goes into a hilly climb. (Lots of roots and very hilly) You cross the cut field for the powerlines and come into the woods again. It is very fast on the way out with a gradual downhill. It is an out and back and can be a figure 8 if you utilize the fireroad. Ride it and explore and stay off the hiking trails. They are mostly in the first entrance area even though they offer some knarly downhill but stay off please.

Review: The trail is incredibly overgrown and washed out into a ton of ruts at this point. You drop right into a rock run and through a creek. the rest paths are filled with roots and very steep climbs. It is extremely hard to tell where the bike trail is and what off shoots are for you and arent. If some work were to be done on the path it might be worth coming back to, but without a clear trail, fallen logs, the overgrown trail, its not worth going to unless you live right near it.

Review: I went to Keehner Park on a weekday night when I could get no one else to ride.

As other reviewers have noted, the trail head is not easy to find and the trails themselves are not really clearly marked. That said, in dry conditions, the trails offered enough variety to keep my interested and the roots and rocks were challenging though not overly so. It is more or less a power line trail, with single track routes going in and out of the forest, across the cleared section and back again.

There is also a really long climb on what amounts to double track. There's really only one track in a widely mowed swath and the climb is long enough to get a really good burn going in your legs. The best part is going back down. Without trees inches away from your bars, you can really let the brakes loose and let the bike work.

I can tell that it would be a bear if the trails were the least bit wet.

This place has potential. A regular trail steward would do this place a world of good.

All in all, if you live in the northern suburbs of Cincinnati and want a trail that's easy to get to, this is a good choice.

Review: Trail itself is probably nice when it's dry . . . and maintained. Some signs but a little confusing. Lots of fallen trees to move.

Review: Being practically in my back yard this trail is my go to spot for getting a quick MTB fix. The trail is slightly overgrown, a little confusing, and in need of some TLC, but it is a good challenging trail. With two creek crossings, steep grades, and plenty of roots, you can get in a well rounded ride that can be enjoyed by a new rider to even the more experienced.

Review: The trail is alright. Some places its overgrown and damaged. If you don't know the layout which there are no good signs to help you, you will most likely get lost. The trail fuses in with the hiking trail which gets confusing. Overall its decent. Mitchell is wayy better.

Review: The trail is iced over right now so it was very slow going and easy to break traction. In order to make some of the climbs the trail needs to be bone dry. This trail is not laid out very well and it's hard to get any kind of flow or speed going. I've ridden several "advanced" or black diamond trails and this isn't one of them. Some areas are short, steep climbs, but there isn't much elevation change overall.
