The hike will begin at the Jackson Street Parking Lot and follow the Narrows Trail through the Clifton Gorge State Nature Preserve, passing numerous overlooks and waterfalls within the first mile as we make our way west into John Bryan State Park. Once inside John Bryan we will continue to follow the Little Miami River for about 2 miles before crossing over a footbridge and looping back around along the South Gorge Trail. This hike will be approximately 4 miles round trip.
This is an opportunity to utilize the skills you developed during the Introduction to Lead Climbing. We will go to an outdoor climbing park and practice lead climbing. Participants will have the opportunity to lead climb or practice more mock lead climbing. There are also opportunities to top rope or boulder. Trip leaders will use their discretion regarding participants’ ability to lead climb.
