Hike the award-winning trails, wind through Eastern deciduous forest, fields, streams and ponds. Play in the Nature PlayScape designed for open-ended creative play. Plants, soil, and water can be touched and manipulated, not just observed, to stimulate the senses and promote a sense of wonder. Picnic on the grass or relax on a bench while your children play. Rowe Woods in Milford, Ohio is just east of Cincinnati, spanning 1,025 acres (including 65 acres of old growth forest) and offering more than 16 miles of hiking trails.

Visit the Nature Center for STORYTIME or CRAFT TUESDAY and stay to explore the Nature Playscape, ponds and more!
