With more than 8 miles of trail and challenging elevation change, the trails at Taylorsville MetroPark offer hikers an opportunity to challenge themselves while immersed in an old-growth forest with stunning river overlooks. From the trailhead located just north of the stone shelter, you will find a variety of trail lengths and difficulty to make your experience fit your needs. Carefully choose a trail based on your hiking expectations, and be sure to come back often to explore and experience seasonal changes in this remarkable area.
The Buckeye and North Country Trails join the Great Miami River Bikeway at Old Springfield Road and follow it south through the park.

About Taylorsville MetroPark
Historic remnants of the Miami-Erie Canal and the once-thriving village of Tadmor mix with scenic forests to provide an interesting experience for both the hiker and bicyclist. In addition, fascinating rock formations with overhangs and small cavitations with calcite ribbons can be found.
Taylorsville MetroPark contains exceptional examples of a mature upland forest with many spring wildflowers, second-growth woodlands, natural succession areas, a few aging pine stands, a few managed grasslands, and extensive floodplain forests along the Great Miami River Corridor.
