Simon Kenton Trail Reviews Return to the Simon Kenton Trail page Submit a Review Urbana to Springfield By sueellenv in August, 2012 We have ridden this trail many times this year. Start at the depot in Urbana (great coffee shop)and take off for Springfield, maybe go on to Yellowsprings (great little college town) and then Xenia. Trail is flat and well taken care of. Nice shelter house mid point to Springfield to stop and rest, also has restrooms. Urbana is a great town for antiques and ambiance. Rode the trail Oct. 17th, 2010 By jschmack in October, 2010 I and my wife rode the trail from Urbana to Springfield, a little over 30 miles of it. The trail is very nice, clean, well maintained. Very ideal for a 69 yr. old couple. But, the internet site directions for the YMCA are not good. It is Community Drive and not Commercial Drive that you use to get to the Y. (Commercial Drive is on the other side of Urbana, per my GPS. The Y would not come up on my GPS ! Also we passed the Y 4 times before realizing that it was set back from Rt. 36 a ways and hard to see behind the business buildings. There are no signs identifying the Y along the highway. Trail now complete By ggwbikemt in November, 2006 This trail is now a complete trail from the north side of Springfield to the north side of Urbana. The trail scenery is a mix of woods and open farmland. The bike route connecting this trail to the Little Miami Trail on the south side of Springfield is a mix of bike paths and surface streets that is not always signed.
