Little Miami Scenic Trail

Disappointing

May, 2017 by hile

We rode this trail because of all the 5 star reviews. Our experience was definitely different. The trail is flat, boring, and exceedingly overgrown, and, there are too few comfort stations. The only bright spots were the towns along the trail and some of the eating and drinking establishments in these towns. We will not return.

Olentangy Trail

Great Ride

April, 2017 by prhelt

The trail could use a little better marking. I never missed a turn by much, but I did miss several as you could not always tell which way to go at a fork. Pretty level and we'll paved. I rode the north and south sections in one ride. I usually don't like to go on a road, but the short road section had no cars in it.

Prairie Grass Trail

Green Acres

April, 2017 by jmk355

Rode it in its entirety today before too many trees have many leaves. Surface is in good/great shape, especially notable in Madison County (north). A cross wind was very noticeable both directions as there is very little to stop a breeze. Also very little to shade the trail and an early case of sunburned arms as a result. Few rest areas and water/bathroom stops --only in London, S. Charleston, Cedarville and Xenia, so be well stocked.

T. J. Evans Trail

needs maintenance.

April, 2017 by jvanburen_tl

This is a very straight trail with a deceiving incline heading north. The bad part is on a road bike it will beat you up. Lots of roots, potholes and grade variances

Marion Tallgrass Trail

WCI Biking Division Honorable Mention

April, 2017 by wci biking division

Road this trail today. We will be back in the fall. This trail is now 11 miles long. This is a very well maintained trail. The trail is nice and wide. The WCI Biking Division has voted to put this on our honorable mention northern Ohio Rail Trail list. It was interesting to watch a controlled burn of the Brambles to the north. Luckily the wind blew the smoke away from the trail. WCI co-founder Rod was very impressed with the farmlands.

Blackhand Gorge Trail

Great Beginner/Kid Friendly Trail

April, 2017 by garybrandy

Very gradual elevations both directions, great scenery, well kept trail. Highly recommend.

Alum Creek Greenway Trail

Nice trail

April, 2017 by bpatch

Very nice ride. Trail in great shape. A little confusing starting out from Nelson Run Park going south. Once you get out of town good to go. Starting from Nelson Run Park going south a little challenging get on the way back as you're dealing with a little bit of a grade. All in all a beautiful ride.

Camp Chase Trail

very nice ride

March, 2017 by jvanburen_tl

Very nice well maintained trail. There are several flip flop across the RR tracks. and a couple highway crossings. There is a gravel section and a short steep hill in Battelle Darby Park so be prepared to go to the small ring.

Simon Kenton Trail

First ride on the SKT

February, 2017 by shooky32

February riding outdoors @ 60 degrees in Ohio who would have dreamed it? Decided to enjoy the day and head to the SKT to check it out. Trailhead in Urbana in very easy to find (right on St Rt 36) and the restored Depot is very nice. Coffee shop inside was very nice too. Trail is relatively flat and in good condition has a little washboard in a few places but nothing too serious. There were a few places that are in need of repair that appeared to be new due to winter, I trust the maintenance crew will have repaired in a timely manner. Not as much canopy as some but still a nice 10 mile stretch from Urbana (Depot) to Springfield (Eagle City Soccer Fields). Check it out!!

Little Miami Scenic Trail

Best trail in US.

January, 2017 by scott leisz

My wife and I have ridden this entire trail many times in segments as well as connecting trails. All trails are paved. Trail follows Little Miami River, and is generally tree lined so can ride it year round. It is very pretty. So I will divide this into 3 sections south middle and north. SOUTH segment--Trail has been extended to about 3 miles south of the golf center where it ends roughly east across the river from Lunken airport. Stay at the Mairimont Best Western if doing south section. From the hotel Trail is 1 mile away down 50 west. You can ride to it or drive down and park at the new 50 West brew pub. South segment is busiest segment. Ride north by Milford to Loveland which is a very cool bike friendly town. Can eat at Julian's or Paxton's both on the trail in Loveland. Bike shop in Loveland too. But no place to stay in Loveland. North of Loveland is prettiest part of trail with very few road crossings. We go up to about Lebanon then go back south. MIDDLE segment--if doing middle section can Stay in Lebanon at Hardy's B & B or the Golden Lamb hotel. Lebanon is a very cool town too. You have to take the Lebanon trail 8 miles to connect to Little Miami trail. Lebanon trail has a BIG hill on the way back. Or drive to the Little Miami Trail and park at Lebanon trail head. If go south from there can go to Loveland. Going north go through Morrow then on to Oregonia. There can eat at Little River Bar-- a bikers bar but very cool. Continue north by Waynsville through Spring Valley to Xenia. Not much in Xenia. Waynsville is 1 mile off the trail but a cool town and can get something to eat there too. Middle segment is not heavily used. But very pretty. In Xenia can get the Ohio to Erie Trail to go on to Columbus. NORTH segment--Here can stay at Yellow Springs at Morgan House B&B or at a new hotel Mills Park Hotel. Several places to eat and drink in town. Yellow Springs is a Very quirky cool bike friendly college town. Trail here is new and wide. Not very busy either. Going south from Yellow Springs takes you to Xenia. Can go as far south as you want. Or pick up Ohio to Erie trail in Xenia towards Columbus. Can turn around at Cedarville another cool town. In Cederville can stay at Hearthstone Inn. Going north from Yellow Springs you go through Springfield an old town that has seen better days. A little sketchy through this town. Then can go north all the way to Urbana. Nothing in Springfield.

Blacklick Creek Greenway Trail

The trail

December, 2016 by scottsub30

Over all I l love this trail except for one minor problem . Why wont Norfolk Virginia Give the city of Columbus that stretch of trail at Hines and Tussing so they can finish the Trail proper? It makes no sense what so ever !!! Complete that area and the trail will be epic
