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.

Little Miami Scenic Trail

Homeless people

June, 2022 by fartinggood

Scary sections of the trail. My husband and I road the trail starting in Corwin to Springfield. Several sections of the trail we went thru were questionable areas. On more then one occasion we were harassed by random homeless people. This can be very scary when out on the trail in the middle of nowhere . I recommend taking some sort of protection with you. I don’t know about the other sections of the trail but we will not be riding these parts ever again. Also, large sections of the trail were overgrown with lots of sticks and brush on the trail. I did not feel safe riding this trail

Sharon Woods Loop Trail

Narrow curvy and kinda rough

April, 2022 by 6d6h82fp6p

I went Longboarding here (there’s a sign or two that say “no in-line skates”, so I technically didn’t break any rules ¿). I didn’t mind the $5 to get in, but I do wish the path was a bit smoother. Overall, the path is pretty narrow, with a number of blind turns (usually at the bottom of a hill, of course), many ups and downs, and absolutely Gorgeous views of the water and woods. I’ll keep visiting periodically for as long as they keep letting me skate.

Williamsburg to Batavia Hike/Bike Trail

Trails and roads

March, 2022 by tpc031

Started on Batavia end which was promising and pretty but after a short distance, we were just walking on a road within the East Fork Park. I don't consider walking on a road with cars to be a Hiking Trail. Will try from the Williamsburg side next time to see if it's better.

Ohio to Erie Trail

Astounding experience: add to your bucket list, now!

December, 2021 by billythekidusa

The OTET is not the ETOT. I found out why when cyclists were flying past me Northbound as I fought headwinds Southbound. Yes the winds wind up the Ohio Valley hence the trail is named Ohio To Erie Trail. I was southbound because after my glorious arrival and celebration in Cincinnati I continued through Louisville, Mammoth Cave and Nashville to our daughters horse farm in Shelbyville TN totaling 721 wondrous miles of memories and new acquaintances both 2-legged and 4-legged. I suggest using credit card

Ohio to Erie Trail

Great Experience

November, 2021 by fcmgybjcqq

A huge shoutout to the organizations that put this trail together, maintain, and promote it - its remarkably well done. There are a few spots that could use some more signage (Westerville is pretty bad) but overall from top to bottom it's hard to get lost. I did this trail in 4.5 days from Cincinnati to Cleveland the last week of October with almost no bike experience. I also used a busted up old mountain bike from the 90s and had pretty much no problem with it.

Shaker Trace Trail

Great Fall Ride

October, 2021 by albertpitcher

I came from Florida to do this trail. It’s very well maintained, sections have shade with other areas open, and it’s not crowded.

Dearborn Trails (Aurora - Lawrenceburg - Greendale)

Fall Ride

October, 2021 by albertpitcher

I did a total of 16 miles along the levy by the Casino Hotel and the Dearborn Trail. I didn’t do the first part that starts in Glendale because of the .6 mile break in trail. Very pleasant, well maintained, and not crowded on a Thursday.

Sharon Woods Loop Trail

Good for walking and running, a little narrow and cracked up in spots for cycling. No roller skates allowed around the lake.I took the Gorge trail and Walnut Falls trail to add some distance. Recommend.

Great-Little Trail

A Good Start to a Key Trail Connector

September, 2021 by orangedoug

This is a trail of considerable contrast. The central part of the current trail encircles Austin Landing, a mixed-use retail district that includes retail stores, restaurants, motels, office buildings and contemporary apartments. There is lots of traffic in and around this mall as commuters enter and exit Interstate 75 at adjoining Exit 41. The trail along Austin Pike (or Boulevard, in front of the Mall) is very busy. At each intersection between trail and roadways there are crossing buttons at the crosswalks. However, with the exception of the crossing at the intersection with Springboro Pike none of these buttons work. You’ll just have to wait for the automated timing for the crosswalk signals to activate in order to cross these streets and highway ramps. My suggestion is to avoid riding along Austin Boulevard as much as possible by riding the portion of the trail that loops around Austin Landing.

There is much less traffic as you move toward either the current eastern or western end of the trail. To the east you will ride around the Miamisburg Soccer Association soccer fields and then through the Medlar Conservation Area. The conservation area is a preserve of over 400 acres that contains mature woods, fields, shrub-scrub habitat and wetlands that protects some of the last quality open space in southern Montgomery County. When you enter the Medlar Conservation Area after coming from Austin Landing it’s like you are in an entirely different world. The trail meanders through this preserve as it makes its way toward the Great Miami River Trail on the eastern bank of the Great Miami River. Once you enter the Medlar you will quickly become aware that you are dropping in elevation. That's not so bad if you are only traveling westward, but challenging if you know you will have to climb back out to return to your start. Fortunately, the planners of this trail put in enough switchbacks into this portion of the trail to make the climb reasonable for most adult riders. Young children would find this climb difficult.

The trail east of Austin Landing runs for about 2 miles along Austin Boulevard/Pike. This portion of the trail is less developed and mostly residential. It passes by Dayton Wright Brothers Airport, a small public civil aviation airport, and ends near Robert F. Mays Park in Washington Township, Ohio. This trail is intended to connect the Great Miami River Trail with the Little Miami Scenic Trail. The trail will be extended further east into either Greene or Warren County depending on the route selected to connect it to the Little Miami Scenic Trail. When this connection between the two river trails will be completed is unknown at this time.

Great Miami River Trail

Southern part of trail

September, 2021 by slah

I ride the southern segments regularly. A good mix of small towns, urban, and scenic areas. The section along the canal to Rentchler forest is one of my favorites. Hopefully, construction on the Third Street Bridge in downtown Dayton will be finished soon, as the trail is closed on both sides of the river.
