Soapbox Cincinnati and author, Caitlin Koenig, have dissected nine area trails that top her list in Greater Cincinnati and Tower Park in Fort Thomas checked in as a hidden gem.

Of course, northern Kentuckians know that Tower Park is the best park in the region, with expansive trails, concerts and our vaunted historical building.

Here's what she had to say about Tower Park:

Barre3 Ft. Thomas. Located at 90 Alexandria Pike in Fort Thomas. This is an advertisement. 

Nestled in the heart of Fort Thomas, Ky., is Tower Park. It’s surrounded by remnants of the U.S. Army post that was founded there in 1890. Officers’ quarters have been turned into houses and a historic building in the heart of the park has been turned into the Military Museum. There are even remnants of old fort buildings along the trail route. The park’s gravel trails wind down a hill to a hard stop at Route 8, making it a challenging hike, especially on the way back up. Parking and trail access at multiple points throughout the park.

Summer is for relaxing and exploring, and Cincinnati has plenty of options for both. We often tend to gravitate toward sitting at a favorite local haunt enjoying a cold one, but sometimes, you just have to get outside.

That’s what Groundwork Cincinnati, a local trail-advocacy group, is encouraging residents to do. Right now, there are bits and pieces of trails all over the city, and Groundwork wants to connect them all — from Hartwell south to the riverbank, and from Rivers Road east to Mount Washington — into one huge trail network.

The majority of Cincinnati’s trails are part of the expansive Ohio to Erie Trail, a network that, once completed, will stretch all across the state, from Cincinnati to Columbus to Cleveland — a whopping 320 miles. Lots of work needs to be done before this happens, but for now, there are more than enough trails to explore.
