Posted on 2/6/2017 by State Nature Preserves
The picturesque cliffs of the Little Miami River provide the backdrop for this 2nd annual winter hike. A former annual tradition, this hike is being revived and is co-sponsored by ODNR’s John Bryan State Park and Clifton Gorge State Nature Preserve.

This guided hike, which is free to the public, will follow the river for approximately six miles passing several historical sites and will include living history encounters along the route. Hikers can learn about some of the unique geologic features as well as cultural history of this site.

Guided groups will leave at 10 minute intervals from 9:00 am-11:00 am, starting at John Bryan State Park, located on State Route 370, two miles east of Yellow Springs. Hot beans and cornbread will be available for a donation at the half-way point at Clifton Gorge State Nature Preserve’s nature center.
