Took kids there to play at the tree house. Let's just say the tree house was NOT clean! If they had inspected it the day we were there they would have shut the area down

This is always a lot to do at this park. I have been here to cookout, walk a dog with a friend and just hang out with friends. It is very big and beautiful.

Hiking is difficult to follow with limited way-finding signs. You are better to enjoy the outdoors at multiple other options close by and a few miles out. The forest is just lacking...although it is always nice to be outside.

Tons of trails! I especially like the treehouse. There are several playgrounds and an excellent frisbee golf course.

Mount Airy Forest is a beautiful place. They have a play area for the kids and trails in the woods. I would never go there without other adults for it is a big place and things do happen.

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,...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.
