The Tri-State area has a wealth of great options for those seeking a good downhill thrill when winter weather sets in. For your sledding pleasure, here's a list of some of the most popular sites for sledding fun in the Queen City.
Overlooking Butler County’s Voice of America Park, the magnificent 65-foot slope known as “Chill Hill” is one of Greater Cincinnati’s most popular sledding locations when the weather turns chilly. The man-made hill is one of the highest elevations in Southwest Ohio and offers a long, clean ride. For those wanting a slightly easier climb, the park offers several smaller sledding hills as well.
With a name like Mount Storm, one might think this 57-acre park’s inclines would be for thrill-seekers only. However, the designated sledding hill at Mount Storm is a gentle (and long!) ride. Don’t forget to check out all of the breathtaking vistas of the winter-bound city below while you’re there. It's also a great pick for a sled-riding date!
Another sledding hotspot (or cold spot?) in Greater Cincinnati is Ault Park in Mount Lookout. The park does not designate a single specific hill for sledding, but there are several fantastic options available depending on personal preference. With that said, the mild slope of the hill facing the pavilion might be the best bet for kids.
Stanbery Park’s sledding hill is infamous and for good reason -- it’s regularly recommended as one of the best in the Tri-State. Moreover, its heavily wooded 125-acre landscape is gorgeous to behold under a thick blanket of snow.
Big Bone might be most well-known for its museum, campground and titular fossils, but it’s also worthy of recognition for some primo sledding hills. Its sprawling natural environment is the perfect place to catch a wintry ride, and it's also a popular destination for winter hiking expeditions.
Although the hill near Clough United Methodist Church in Anderson Township is on private property, the church has a long tradition of permitting sled riders to enjoy it. This huge 300-plus-foot sledding area is a perfect spot for family fun.
