Protecting and Preserving the Ohio River Corridor

Bender Mountain – Great Outdoor Weekend Hikes
Date: Saturday, September 27
Time: 9am 

The strenuous hike will start at 9:30 am with a climb through a beautiful forest on our Eagle Scout Trail. At the top we will be treated to a spectacular view of the Ohio River Valley. We will then hike along the ridge top trail to Paw Paw Gap for the return to the trailhead. The moderate hike will start at 10 am and will meander along the slope of Bender Mountain through an equally beautiful forest. We will also hike to Paw Paw Gap and with a little luck will be able to sample that delectable fruit.

For both hikes meet at the gravel parking area on Bender Road about ½ mile from Hillside.

Please join us as we explore this nature prserve that is the best place in Hamilton County to observe native wildflowers.

Lunch will be provided. More details to come…





In addition, one or more of us usually winds up going to a preserve a couple of mornings during the week to take a walk and while they are there, they just can’t help whacking some honeysuckle. If you would like to join one of these walks, please call (513.922.2104) or email Tim Sisson and he’ll let you know when and where to meet.
