Think Mt Airy is the largest of the Hamilton County (greater Cincinnati) parks. There are lots of paths, entrances, and recreational areas. It is made up of rolling and steeper hills with fairly dense tree growth.

We visited the "forest", which seemed more like a huge park. There appears to be multiple entrances for the park. The MAIN entrance off Colerain has a fork in the road, one going left and the other right. If you go right into the park, you will be entering the arboretum section. This is where all the plants and gardens... More

Have been dropping in at MAF many time over the years. Some nice hiking trails (short). The arboretum offers lots of attractions, walking areas, and diverse flora.

The hiking trials weren't marked very well and the Arboretum was closed. The gardens around the Arboretum were in need of some TLC and up keep.... More

Took a group of children 4yrs to 10yrs old, Enjoyed hiking, wild life and the famous Tree House. Upon driving in we stopped to watch a flock of wild turkey cross the roadway in front of us. During playground time, raccoons were seen scampering around in the woods at edge of clearing. Several raccoon tried to sneak out of cover... More

This park is quite impressive. It is very large, and has a lake, trails, and an arboretum. Also, it has a professional-quality disc golf course. Highly recommended!

Nestled in the city, you wouldn't imagine how large this forest is. There are multiple entrances and it is large enough to get lost but overall beautiful. They have some ponds and trails, gazebos and beautiful vegetation. Definitely a great place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of life, and even better, it's only a few... More

I took my young boys to Mount airy forest to explore the Tree House, It was very cool, We then explored some of the nature paths and then off the the large playground. There were many options to choose from, We have also used this park for family pcitures located by the gazebo. It is a beautiful park.

The Good: large, fairly maintained, free, trails, good location The Bad: city and highway noise, mixed maintenance, area not so great This is a large park with gardens, trails, forest and a large pond. It's a nice place for a picnic or a little exercise. It's pretty but the maintenance is a little spotty. I have never seen it crowded... More
