Little Miami Scenic Trail

Yellow Springs to Xenia

May, 2023 by bluegrasslass

Trail surface in super condition; mostly dappled shade. Quiet on a Monday in late May. Great place to stay in YS is Arthur Morgan B&B; we’ve been there several times and enjoy the town.

Simon Kenton Trail

Was Just ok

May, 2023 by keith.a.burley

Three and a half stars Rode Simon Kenton trail from Bellefountaine to West Liberty and back (14 mile round trip). It is a seal and chip surface in very good condition done in 2018 (https://www.simonkentonpathfinders.org/about/). It is a rail-to-trail so it is basically flat. The trail runs alongside a set of train tracks - as noted in other reviews - no shade except in the late afternoon / evening. Not anything particularly attractive about the trail other than a new place to ride.

Little Miami Scenic Trail

Avoca Park to Lake Isabella

May, 2023 by dave.willard

We did Avoca Park to Lake Isabella Park on this trail today. About 20 miles round trip. It was an absolute beauty of a ride. The trail is wide and well maintained. There are lots of toilet spots and it only crosses a handful of small, low-traffic roads. I highly recommend this ride.

Honey Creek Trail

Nice, paved trail for walking, biking or rollerblading

April, 2023 by kittyvista

I began my walk at the trail head in Middletown, and walked east toward Honey Creek. The trail was nicely paved and level. I only walked a mile or so, but I was impressed with the natural beauty I came across. The area near the trail is marshy, and the skunk cabbage and marsh marigolds were just starting to flower. There are numerous buckeye trees along the trail that were clearly planted by squirrels or blue jays. Every so often, you'll see a brilliant spray of redbud in bloom.

There is parking in town behind the fire station, but you can also use the parking area in the town park that is just north of the trail on Raider Road. If you are planning to walk east as I did, this would probably be the best choice for parking. Although many people driving on Raider Road will stop if they see you are wanting to cross the road, the drivers have the right-of-way and they are not required to stop. Parking in the park means you don't have to cross Raider Road on foot or bicycle.

Because there are no benches or port-o-potties, you'll need to know your limits. The trail itself is an easy walk / ride, but it is lengthy and it's easy to go further than you planned on.

Great American Rail-Trail

Great Allegheny Trail southeast of Pittsburgh?

April, 2023 by eshawger

Surprised to see this amazing trail that has great bed and breakfasts along it is not noted as part of the Great American Rail Trail. It sure would help demonstrate more GART completion if it was.

Wolf Creek Trail (OH)

Never again

February, 2023 by dpaxton

I started this trail (bike) in Dayton, just off on 3rd street. The entire trail was poorly marked - at one point I didn't know if I was on the trail. It turns out I wasn't. Trail was full of broken glass and trash. Absolutely ridiculous. Whoever maintains the trail, Dayton City or Montgomery County - should be embarrassed.

Xenia-Jamestown Connector

Xenia-Jamestown Connector extension

February, 2023 by greggo63

Looks like this trail will be extended.
Can some enlighten me?

Honey Creek Trail

Honey Creek Trail Not Complete as Illustrated

December, 2022 by tfdands

The trail itself is lovely, mostly through farm fields and along a creek/ravine, with new asphalt and signage, and a crossing light at the busiest intersection. That being said, the trail is not complete as Illustrated in the map. The section bordered by N CR 600 W and W CR 700 N was not paved and is actually fenced-off. It appears that the land owners were unwilling to sell this to the trail association, Healthy Communities of Henry County. Also, there are no specified trailheads for parking and no port-o-pots.

Cardinal Greenway

First ride on the Cardinal Greenway Oct.,2022

December, 2022 by cwiokster

In the last week of October 2022, while heading to N. VA. to attend a hobby
show, I decided to bring along the bike to sample some bike trails along the way.
First stop was Richmond IN, southern terminus of the Cardinal Greenway,
another Rail-Trail Hall of Fame trail [My 4th]. It reminded Me of the Tanglefoot
Trail a bit, due to the rural region, only instead of cotton & soybeans, the crop
is corn. Quite a bit of harvesting going on. Saw lots of Fall foliage as well; a
bonus of riding there during this time of year. [Peak "Leaf Peeping" season].
Oct 24 I rode the stretch from Richmond to Losantville & back [50 miles].
Oct 25 I rode from Losantville to Muncie & back [36 miles]. I ran into some
construction near the Depot Trailhead in Muncie, so cut the ride short there,
as rain also threatened. (A detour was possible, but unsigned; too bad.)
Overall I really enjoyed this trail; very light grades made for an easy peddle.
The route parallels US 35 so trailhead access is easy, with plenty of rest stops,
though only a few have water available, so bring a good supply to start. Will return
to do the northern portion next year.

Ohio to Erie Trail

Enjoy Ohio on a bike...

October, 2022 by 7s5a692x35

Overview:
• If you are a gravel enthusiast, you will be very disappointed as the OTET is 92% either paved or concrete.
• I would not attempt to experience the OTET without GPS guidance {bike computer or 3rd party software on a smartphone {i.e. Ride with GPS} or you will experience navigation set backs on your adventure.
• Areas that are crushed limestone/chert have a sparse covering and could be messy after a rain as there was plenty of exposed hard packed dirt due to a lack of limestone/chert covering.

Cleveland to Massillon 5 October 2022 ~ 70 miles
• Trails Experienced:
o Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail

• Beautiful views of the Cayuga river and Canal tow path with some locks in remarkable condition.
• Detour at the city limits of Massillon and as we arrived at end of the workday and the transition through was met with heavy traffic. You will need to make the downtown transition to rejoin the OTET on the Southside of Massillon.
Massillon to Mount Vernon 6 October 2022 ~ 80 miles
• Trails Experienced:
o Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail
o Sippo Valley Trail (10 Mile)
o Holmes County Trail (23 Mile)
o Kokosing Gap Trail (13.5 Mile)

• Expect rural road riding (20+ mile) through Mennonite/Amish communities from Dalton to Fredericksburg. This transition was well marked at every turn and you can see an example in the photo section for this trail.

Mount Vernon to Columbus 7 October 2022 ~ 52 miles
• Trails Experienced:
o Heart of Ohio Trail (17 Mile)
o Alum Creek Trail (25.2 Mile)

Columbus to Xenia 8 October 2022 ~ 60 miles
• Trails Experienced:
o Camp Chase Trail (15.9 Miles)
o Robert’s Pass Trail (6.5 Miles)
o Prairie Grass Trail (29.2 Miles

Xenia to Cincinnati 9 October 2022 ~ 70 miles
• Trails Experienced:
o Little Miami Scenic Trail (78.1 Miles)
o Armleder-Lunken Connector Trail (1.0 mile)
o Lunken Bike Path (5.0 Miles)
o Ohio River Trail (7.6 Miles)

• There is a detour on the Little Miami Scenic Trail halfway to Cincinnati near Kings Mill Bike Trail Access. After talking to some local runners on the Trail, they highly recommend not taking the detour due to road safety for cyclists. You can safely and easily make it through the detour and once you make it to the construction area with the buildings, head to the Cartridge Brewery and on the backside of it you can rejoin the trail.

Miami & Erie Canal Towpath

Not paved

October, 2022 by rdhemm63

We live just 20 miles from this path. And did it for the first time yesterday. We did New Breman to St Marys. Started out beautiful but a mile out of town we lost the path. Only to find out it is a grass path between the canal and a corn field. Would be beautiful quiet walking path. But for sure not for bikes. We cut around and did some back roads and tried again further north. But the whole way from NB to SM is grass. May need to check out further south.
