Very nice trails around the fort hill. On the South East corner of the fort flat (through the saplings) there is an obvious deep depression.

A friend and myself hiked this trail in November. It is a nice trail with some great scenery. Just challenging enough. Trail was will kept. We went off trail many times in the gorge just to do some exploring. Like others have said, take your trekking poles.

Great hike! with great scenery. My wife and I hiked Deer Trail and returned through the Gorge Trail. Outside of Hocking Hills (does have poor signage )this has to be one of the top trails within 1.5 hours from Cincinnati. Will be back to complete the Canopy Trail.

Also, the directions that AllTrails gave us were horrible. The original entrance it took us to was down a gravel side street with no signage and no trail.

Very easy trail. We took all 3 kids and they loved it. Nice scenery, some wild life, and plenty of birds. It's just too bad there aren't more trails in the rocky fork region to take. I'll be going again.

I completed the fort trail a few months ago. not to bad of a trail. the first 400ft or so is all up hill, just enough to get your heart rate up. once on top its mostly flat, but you get to see some earthworks.
