4.25 Mile Moderate Hike at the Narrows Reserve

 

The Narrows Reserve runs along the Little Miami River in Beavercreek, just a few miles from Kettering on Indian Ripple Rd.

We'll meet in the main parking lot and hike the Vista Trail, the River Trail, the Big Woods Trail, and the Sugar Bush Trail ...that should be about 4.25 miles. If the group decides to add another loop, if time and conditions allow let's do it.

Go PAST this sign to get to the park itself, assuming you are coming from the west.

 

To get to the Narrows find your way to 675, like you were going to The Greene.  Get off on Indian Ripple Rd and head east into Beavercreek.  Go past Fairfield Road light and keep going... the first entrance is the nature center, just past that is the park itself.  Follow the short road into the park and look for the group.

Recommended Equipment:

If trails are soggy I would suggest hiking boots.  A flashlight or head lamp is recommended in case we get ambitious and it starts to get dark.  Water is always recommended on any hike.  Otherwise I do not anticipate any difficulty ... trails are smooth, wide and well marked/maintained.

 

 

Thanks to Greene County Parks District for maintaining this little gem of a park.

Remember:  Coming from Montgomery County the driveway to the main parking lot is just past the entrance to the nature center.

If you run into trouble feel free to call me at[masked]

Limited parking, if there are some +1 or +2 groups I may expand the attendance limit.

Kids and dogs welcome pursuant to Greene County Park rules and regulations.

Expect a pace of about 2.5 to 2.8 mph, with a few hills and a few "stairs" along with lots of smooth level walking.
