Description
Are you looking to take on an unforgettable challenge with your courageous canine? Then you'd be barking mad to miss out on the Mt. Airy Forest Explorers Trail! First carved out of these wondrous woods by a group of Boy Scouts in the 60's or 70's, this pawsome path has gone on to become a favorite among furever friends, and it's not hard to see why. The Mt. Airy Forest gives Cincinnati, OH locals a chance to escape their bustling city lives for a while and lose themselves in an open oasis. This urban jungle is a rewarding retreat that's home to an abundance of wildlife and bursting with vibrant flora. Navigate this fantastical forest with your four-legged favorite and you'll traverse charming creeks and ravishing ravines and ridges! Not only that, but take a look up into the tremendous trees and you'll see the famous Everybody's Treehouse. This heavenly hut provides breathtaking views of the forest and it can't be missed. 


The Mt. Airy Forest Explorers Trail gives you and your pupperific pal the best of both worlds. This track runs from one end of the forest to the other, packing in as much as it can, and this means that you've got all of the park facilities at your disposal while you're on your adventure. While it's always a good idea to pack water for you and your pup, there are also a few water stations to be found along the trail. There are plenty of restrooms, but bring puppy poop packaging and avail of the many trash cans dotted about for dumping. This trail is more suited to experienced hikers because of the elevation gains, winding path, and loose, rocky surfaces. The Mt. Airy Forest is a dog-loving land and there's even an off-leash dog park to be found among the shrubs. Make no bones about it, this place is the stuff that doggy dreams are made of!

Cautions & Considerations
The Mt. Airy Forest Explorers trail can be difficult to follow as it is only marked with hard-to-spot red 'E's or white blazes and so it's important to keep your eyes peeled for these when out hiking.  This trail also crosses and follows many roads so keep your dog on their leash and exercise particular caution in these parts.
