Winter Update

This peaceful place is one of Five Rivers MetroParks' most expansive and untouched natural parks, and it is not unusual for visitors to take a long hike without seeing another hiker. Miles of trails stretch throughout the property. See the snow covered banks of the Twin Creek inside the park after a winter snowfall. It is worth the hike. The astounding scenery is nature at its best. Even when it's cold, you can enjoy a hike along part of the Twin Valley Backpacking Trail. Sit quietly in the morning or at dusk for the deer to emerge from their hiding spots!

    • A world of serenity awaits with panoramic views and miles of hiking and equestrian trails. Only 20 minutes from Dayton, the park enables users to hike, fish, picnic, and many other exciting adventures.

    • The southern 267 acres of Twin Creek Park were originally Camp Hook Boy Scout Camp, founded in 1926. It ran as a summer camp until 1991. Purchased by MetroParks in 1997.

    • There are three ADA accessible parking sites at Lake George parking lot.

    • This outstanding natural area contains steep, wooded ravines containing mature forest with a diverse understory plant life, extensive areas of second growth forest, floodplain forest, several large managed grasslands, a large scenic pond, and the beautiful Twin Creek. In addition, the MetroPark contains a winding prehistoric Indian mound and a scenic hilltop vista. The MetroPark is linked by the wooded Twin Creek Corridor that connects it to Germantown MetroPark to the north. To learn more about the efforts to protect the Twin Creek, watch our video.
