The Cincinnati Nature Center is a little piece of heaven. There are many trails that wind through forests, around ponds and across prairies. The wildlife can be seen frequently and include deer, squirrels, chipmunks, turtles, bullfrogs, turkeys, pileated woodpeckers, goldfinches and so much more. Running the perimeter loop showcases all the nature center has to offer and provides a challenging, yet serene trail run.
The route begins and ends at the north end of the Visitor Center parking area. You can run the main loop and 2 smaller loops in either direction. You do not need to run the short out & back section on the Lookout Trail to the lookout / shelter.
