Years ago I went canoeing on the Little Miami River; the river serenely wound its way between the wooded river banks. But at Clifton Gorge, the Little Miami River is something altogether different; it plunges over falls and rapids between narrow cliffs of dolomite and shale. The river and surrounding cliffs are the main attractions of Clifton Gorge State Nature Preserve, a 268 acre preserve located adjacent to John Bryan State Park. The Little Miami River flows through both, with the nature preserve upstream where the river roils. You can enter the trail from John Bryon State Park on one end or from a parking lot in the town of Clifton on the other end. Or like us, you can choose an in-between point by using the parking lot off of SR 343 just before you enter the town of Clifton (see map in the PDF brochure listed below).
