The most beautiful scenery in OH...but not a place to go for solitude. The hundreds of people create a theme park type atmosphere. Ohio should consider limiting visitors by requiring people to get permits because this area is truly being destroyed by the people who visit.

Fun hike with kids. On the portions down in the gorge, there are lots of places for the kids to explore & climb .

Did it today with a three year old and two small dogs. The Red trail is very easy, if you stick to the blue trail its much more difficult, and people with large dogs had trouble because the dogs were afraid to go over the rock formations. With that said my three year had a blast climbing the rocks and had little trouble.

My wife and I have done this trail many times - including the winter. We have actually expanded the length and difficulty of the trail by veering off onto the bridle trail along Chippewa Creek Drive. Very nice trail.

4 mile black trail with 4 shorter trails nearby \ best parking at toboso \ red and yellow trails run along the black, which is a paved-over expired railroad bed \ red trail overlooks some small cliffs and lakes, surprisingly scenic for a little riverside place \ yellow goes up some very long hills \ green is across the river; a short walk through the woods that smell ever the slightest bit of funky in september \ blue is a short trail nearby that ends at a rock tunnel after which there's a nature preserve

Decent but not hard like the map claims. Lots of grass paths to walk through that can be pretty wet and tall at times.

We only hiked to the lower falls and back around. It was miserably humid in the morning, but the hiking was nice and the scenery makes it hard to believe you are in Ohio. We started around 10:30 or so and the crowds were not too bad yet. By the time we got back to the parking lot, it was starting to get pretty busy. Conkles Hollow was much less crowded and spectcular!
