Tips for birding Ward Road Area and Mountain Bike Trail
To reach Ward Road from the intersection of Harveysburg Road and OH-73, go east on OH-73 for .9 mile, turn left (north) on Brimstone Road for 1.8 miles, turn left onto Ward Road and proceed 1.3 miles to the Ward Road trailhead parking lot. The 4.4-mile loop has moderate footing with frequent 50-to-100-foot elevation changes.

About Caesar Creek State Park
The Caesar Creek State Park area sits astride the crest of the Cincinnati Arch, a convex tilting of bedrock layers caused by an ancient upheaval. Younger rocks lie both east and west of this crest where some of the oldest rocks in Ohio are exposed. The sedimentary limestones and shales tell of a sea hundreds of millions of years in our past which once covered the state. The park’s excellent fossil finds give testimony to the life of this long vanished body of water.

The forests of the area are comprised of over 65 species of plants. Several major communities thrive in the area. A northern floodplain forest is found in the valley, while mixed associations of oak-hickory and beech-maple woodlands clothe the ridges and hillsides. Red-tail hawk, white-tail deer, raccoon, red fox and box turtle make the park their home.
