Taking it Outside

The trees are green, the flowers are beginning to bloom, and it’s a perfect time of year to take a family hike! Walking along the river at Lesko Park and hiking along the Dearborn Trail are great choices for a shorter hike, but within an easy drive, there are many rewarding trails to explore. If you’re looking for some new ideas, you can take a look at these books from the Aurora Public Library District collection.

Remember, we’re just a short drive away from the trails at Versailles State Park, Clifty Falls State Park, and at the Oxbow Nature Conservancy.

The Cincinnati/Hamilton County Park system is one of the best in the country and offers over 78 miles of trails at multiple locations around the tri-state area. You’ll be able to find a trail that’s just right for your family, whether you’re looking for a day-long adventure or a short nature hike that ends at a playground.
