Tammy York


Including Clifton Gorge, Southeast Indiana, and Northern Kentucky

60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Cincinnati by Tammy York is one book that covers the best and sometimes the least-well-known hiking destinations within 60 miles of the greater Cincinnati area. The hikes were selected based on family friendliness, scenery, and history.

Many of the hikes fall between 3 to 5 miles in length, which provides parents with a relaxing and revitalizing hike even little ones can enjoy. This isnít a bunch of poppy-cock either. Author Tammy York hiked most of the trails with her two young daughters.

60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Cincinnati was created with other parents and newbie hikers in mind, while also providing challenging hikes for skilled hikers.

With this guide, hikers will discover many of the local hidden hiking treasures that are in or near Cincinnati. Places such as Caldwell Nature Preserve, Mary Gray Bird Sanctuary, and Quiet Trails Nature Preserve offer incredible views, ample wildlife and wildflowers, and a chance to get away from everything and enjoy the simple pleasure of nature.

Trails in the guide cover Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky, and range from easy to you-must-be-joking difficult. For example, Sharon Woods is an easy and accessible paved trail for most of the hike, but Clifty Falls State Park hike will challenge your ability to concentrate on crossing slippery and tippy rocks without falling into the stream.
