John Bryan State Park

John Bryan State Park is a 752 acre Ohio State Park that surrounds Clifton Gorge, located between the Little Miami River and Yellow Springs.  Park Activities include boating along Little Miami River, 18-hole disc golf course, picnicking shelter houses, day-lodge, rock climbing, rappelling, 10 hiking trails, 6 mountain biking trails, and winter recreation conditions that are excellent for cross-country skiing. 

The park originates in 1896 from Riverside Farm, a 335-acre property owned by John Bryan.  In 1918, Bryan donated the land to the State of Ohio "...to be cultivated by the state as a forestry, botanic, and wildlife reserve park and experiment station." Already one of Ohio's first forest parks, in 1949 John Bryan State Park was established by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.
