Winter’s Brief Return at East Fork State Park

In January, when I planned a winter hike for Isaac’s Mountain Lion patrol, we were still in the midst of an abnormally warm Cincinnati winter. I was pleasantly surprised, therefore, when we woke up on an early March Saturday morning to a coverlet of snow, with a steady fall of thick flakes. While the drive to East Fork State Park was dicey at times, the Williamsburg-to-Batavia Hike-Bike Trail provided a satisfying and simple three-mile hike despite the weather.
