If local outdoor activities are the thing for you, we have the bike/hiking trail, nearby parks and the river:
Little Miami Scenic Trail is less than a quarter mile down our hill. It goes as far south as Newtown/Anderson and as far north as Yellow Springs (about 83 miles of trail). If you are an avid biker our cottage is the place to be! We can accommodate weather-free, safe storage of your bikes in the locked garage or, if necessary, the storage/laundry area next to your bedroom. So, if you are in training or just looking for a casual weekend bike ride, consider our cottage for a home-base.
Lake Isabella is a nearby (3 miles), quiet, well-maintained Hamilton County park with a 28-acre pay lake that is stocked with fish from March to October. If fishing isn’t for you there are picnic areas with shelters/grills, playground, full restrooms, a canoe/kayak launch into the Little Miami River, a wildlife viewing shelter and planned activities throughout the year. Permit fees are low at $14/annual and $5/daily for visitors.
Kelly Nature Preserve is less than 2 miles away on Route 126, near the west edge of Miamiville directly on the Little Miami River. It offers free access from morning to dusk, with a parking area, launch for canoe or kayak, a hiking trail through the 42 acre rustic preserve to a wildlife viewing area and a wild meadow full of native plants.
If you really want to spend a full day of hiking in the woods, there are a number of spots around our area, but our favorite is the Cincinnati Nature Center. It is not far, just a 20 minute drive east of Milford (there are visitor fees).
