Annual Winter Hike Series

  • January 26, 2020
  • 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
  • Kirby Nature Center 2 Main Street, Addyston Ohio 45001

Organization: Western Wildlife Corridor

Don’t let the cold weather keep you inside! Join us for our free annual winter hike for some fresh air and exercise. Bender Mountain has over three miles of hiking trails, some with a fantastic view of the Ohio River. This is a lovely restored nature preserve supporting hundreds of plant and animal species. Sightings of the meanderings of wildlife in winter will probably be found, especially if there is snow on the ground! Dress for the weather and wear sturdy hiking boots. The hike has been carefully scheduled for a Sunday when there is no professional football (so no excuses). 

There is no cost for this event and families are welcome.

How to get thereMeet at the barrier at the end of Delhi Pike near the Mount St. Joseph University. 

Distance: The moderate hike is just under 2 miles long if you decide to go the whole way down and back. The strenuous hike could be over 3 miles. The first part of the hike will be on the portion of Delhi Pike that was closed years ago due to hill slippage, but still makes a nice hiking path (commonly called Sisters’ Hill Trail). Those who prefer a moderate hike can turn around at the end of this part and return to the meeting place.
Those interested in a strenuous hike

 can continue on a trail we’ve constructed up from Hillside Avenue to the top of Bender Mountain to reach old-growth forest and a nice view of the Ohio River. 

Where: Drive west to the end of Delhi Avenue in Delhi Township, Ohio. There is also regular bus service via Queen City Metro, route 32.
