Great Miami River Trail

Scenic, Smooth, Frustrating

August, 2022 by daveschreiber

Great diverse scenery, for the most part smooth, well-kept, asphalt pavement but there are a number of intersections that are nor clearly marked as to which direction to go. My brother and I rode from Franklin to Piqua and there is a split in Dayton you have to watch for otherwise you'll go down the Mad River trail. The next area where there were a number of intersections that were not clearly marked was when you got close to Troy. There was one intersection where you had to make a 90 degree turn after crossing a bridge that was very poorly marked. There should be clear consistent arrows at each intersection indicating the direction the main trail continues. It was too easy at many of these to go the wrong way and find out a mile later you better turn around and go back.

Little Miami Scenic Trail

Love most of this trail. 5 stars to everything but Springfield

July, 2022 by jessiesgirl9780

We ride this trail very often from Corwin to Yellow Springs and love this portion of the Trail. We went North of Yellow Springs for the 1st time this past weekend heading to Urbana. for the 1st time we felt unsafe on the trails in Springfield. We have been on 100's of miles of the trails all over Dayton, Troy, Miamisburg, Piqua, Loveland, Morrow, Beavercreek, Xenia. I have never feared being on the path with my husband. This was the 1st time we made it a point to turn around before getting to our planned stopping point to be sure we had the energy to keep a steady pace to get back through an area without slowing or stopping. homeless, graffiti, glass on trail, we love riding but will not go on this portion of trail again. I want to be clear it was only the Springfield area. If going North of Yellow Springs I would stop at I believe it was called Beatty Park, skip Springfield and hope back on at a different time north of Springfield. I will Note that we never passed any other bike riders in this area in either direction, which we have never encountered being completely alone for a few miles.

Clinton-Fayette Friendship Trail

July 2022 Beautiful Ride

July, 2022 by fairviewfarmrhp

Started at Borum Road end in Fayette county. Parking available there. Beautiful, wide, paved path. Well maintained with nice mix of sun and shade. Roll through corn fields, active railway nearby, easy 30 min ride to a small town park which may have restrooms in season. Children may enjoy park swings as a break. Shelter for picnic. Continues for a very short stretch on village street then back to trail. Had to head back before I made it to west end so not sure if paved through but I suspect it is.

I grew up in Muncie and ride this when I return home to visit my Mom. Great trail and well maintained. I used to cross the rail road tracks when I walked to middle school. Lots of fun memories!

Tecumseh Trail Multi-use Pathway

Super nice local hike

July, 2022 by mbrown30

Really a great local area hike, easy not really any hills.
Broke the hike into 2 early morning hikes (6am) over the 4th July weekend.
First half from Bradford (Church parking lot) to Trail Head on Hartzell road(3-4 nice parking spots) -My Apple watch showed 7.70Miles.(2hr 20mins)
Next day we finished up from Hartzell Rd to the end at Garst. (6.16 miles, 2hr hike)
Really a great nice hike that we plan on doing frequently now. Trail is pretty well marked, could use a sign maybe at Ohio St & Martin and we could not find one to start the hike in Bradford, but really no big deal, easy to figure out if you take second.(or we may have just missed it-not sure)
If you have a couple hours, really is a nice walk if you split it up, or when it's cooler in fall just do the whole thing as we will.

Xenia-Jamestown Connector

Nice quiet country ride

June, 2022 by 75hrbw4yxk

This trail is great for those looking to do some peaceful quiet miles. Rarely very many people on the trail, and those you do see become regulars you’ll stop and talk to. Trail is nicely maintained, the only negative is that once you pass through Jamestown there are a lot of sticks and debris on the path several days after any storm or windy day. That area just doesn’t ever see much traffic and dead ends into a field. A real shame they didn’t complete the extra couple miles to the outlet mall, cause you are truly riding to no where. You’ll ride next to an airfield that is a very active skydiving park, go through a small town ( stop at Orion coffee), and do many miles of shaded country. All in all, great for a relaxed peaceful ride.

Buck Creek Trail (OH)

A hidden gem in Springfield

June, 2022 by guslipp

I cycle the Old Reid Park / Pumphouse Rd to the Simon Kenton section of the train on a regular basis. It is very common to see deer, rabbits, Blue Herron and ducks along this area. Also will see kayakers on the creek during the summer and fall months. Going from east to west the trail forks at the 2nd rail road trestle. Bear left to go to the Little Miami and Sinon Kenton trails. Bearing right will take you under the bridge and toward Cliff Park and Springfield Art Museum. This will put you just north of the downtown and the southern edge of Wittenberg University.

Do note some sections of the trail may be muddy after heavy rains.
Recommend parking at the ranger station at the reservoir or art museum .
