Recent Trail Reviews

Little Miami Scenic Trail

Favorite Trail

August, 2018 by reh13

I drive 7 hours to cycle this trail. Typically start in Xenia, but have started in other towns. Loveland is also a favorite. This trail is one of my absolute favorites. Great surface, plenty of places to stop for breaks.

Creekside Trail

Connector to Everything

August, 2018 by herm.greider

Very important trail to the different bikeways. It provides a connector between Great Miami Trail and Little Miami Trail. You can take this from downtown Dayton to Xenia to head north to Yellow Springs, south to Cincinnati, or east to Columbus.

I ride this from Beavercreek into Xenia or to Yellow Springs. The opposite direction leads through Eastwood Lake Metropark to Huffman Dam or Downtown Dayton.

It is a very wide trail, but is heavily traveled. Many other cyclists and walkers. Families and slow riders. Take it easy and expect some slow spots.

There are many parks with picnic benches and shelters along the way. Good water supply at Beavercreek Community Park (Factory Road) and Beavercreek Station (N Fairfield).

Not well known, but there is a bit of easy gravel in Creekside Reserve. Traveling from Beavercreek Station, take the side entrance on the right into the reserve. The gravel trail is approx 2 miles to Factory Road.

There are also several busy street crossings. Be careful!

Alum Creek Greenway Trail

alum creek south trail

July, 2018 by mkt45833

We started at the Easton soccer fields. Unfortunately we parked in the northern lot Park in the southern lot and you won’t have a short ride on Sunbury Road. Sunbury is very busy an may I say scary to ride. The trail is beautiful, shady, clean and well marked. There are very few crossings and only a few tree roots. We detoured into Bexley and enjoyed views of the beautiful homes. It’s a Fun ride that we do ride again.

Great Miami River Trail

Beautiful trail

July, 2018 by gatorcritter

I rode the section from Dayton to Troy and back on a 90+ degree day. It is a beautiful trail that is well signed, in a good condition, and has a fair amount of shade. There were some rough patches of asphalt near Troy but otherwise it was in excellent condition.

Clinton-Fayette Friendship Trail

It's a Start to an Interesting Trail if Improved and Expanded

July, 2018 by orangedoug

I rode the trails in Wilmington, Ohio so I was curious about this one when I heard that it had opened last year. I started my ride at the trailhead parking lot at the corner of North College and Mound Streets in Sabina, OH. The town is essentially at the current center of the trail. The trail is very flat so it is easy in that respect. Through town the path is paved. the trail surface for last 2 or 3 miles at either end is currently railroad ballast. The limestone aggregate surface at either end of the trail is not crushed, so stones range in size from pea to half dollar-sized. This made for a slow go in the unpaved portions of the trail. I wouldn't ride a road bike at either end of the trail. Finally, despite being tree-lined for most of the trail, there wasn't as much shade on this trail as one might think.

The trail is arrow straight and apart from riding through Sabina you are surrounded by farmland the whole time. My recommendation is to wait to travel to ride this trail until it is either entirely paved or until it is connected to either Washington Courthouse or Wilmington or both.

Scioto Greenway Trail

Nice Trail, Lots to see

June, 2018 by awalton70

I usually start this trail at the Scioto Audubon Park. I park in the small parking area on the left side of Whittier for easier access. There are some beautiful wooded areas that run along the river around the Audubon park, and once you go under the freeway underpass a beautiful view of downtown pops up. Stay on the lower part of the trail and ride clear through downtown along the waterfront and never have to cross a busy street. There are many spurs along the way to stop at some of the downtown parks - but many of them are pretty steep inclines. It’s about 2.5 to 3 miles from the Audubon park to the confluence bridge which offers a nice view and then connects to the Olentangy Trail. Trail can be a bit challenging at times for the novice rider as there are some slight inclines to climb, but not too terrible. I am totally comfortable, as a middle aged female, riding this portion of this trail alone during the day, especially during the week, as there is always a lot of people around. It is busy, but not crowded. I would highly recommend this portion of this trail.

Alum Creek Greenway Trail

Lovely Trail! Don't miss it!

June, 2018 by sweetcat

My husband and I were going to park in Alum Creek North Park but due to limited Parking we went across the street to Astronaut Park were there were plenty of spaces. We weren't sure where the trail began and be advised the locals do not refer to it as a/the "greenway" and all the signs label it as Alum Creek Trail. There is a bike path behind Astronauts' Park that goes under the bridge and comes up in Alum Creek North Park take that then continue to your left and to crossing over the bridge where you will see a sign labeled "ALUM CREEK TRAIL" on your left . Then off you go. There are several off shoots on this trail and they all appear to be marked. The farther you go the better the signage becomes. You will eventually see white lettering on the trail itself for "ALUM CREEK NORTH" or "ALUM CREEK SOUTH" with arrows -especially when another trail converges. Most times the Alum Creek Trail has dashes separating the lanes. We rode about 12 miles out in total ( with a few side detours to check out the sights) and turned around where Sunbury Rd hits Sunbury Ridge Dr. The trail was beautiful and in only a very few places did we see any trash on it. Once we got away from Westerville we also saw few people on the trail. This trail is a jewel and not to be missed. It feels as if you are isolated in the woods running along a creek for most of the ride. There is a long board walk that passes through a marshy wetland area and several bridges over rushing water and parks and golf courses along it. There had been heavy rain a few days before we visited and you could see the water had in some spots run over the trail as there was mud in spots. We were on mountain bikes so no problems and road bikes would be fine. On June 25, 18 there was a HUGE black sewer pipe running along the side of the trail and over bridges for a segment while a sewer project is underway. The workers were very careful with their equipment while we were passing and other than seeing the pipe we didn't have any issues with it. The trail has curves, slight ups and downs and a lot of wonderful visual interest. You will pass under a series of underpasses/bridges, over arched bridges, along parks, golf courses, office buildings, and apartments, but the majority seem to be lovely green space/woods and this is just the area we traveled. We had very few street crossing and they are well marked with cross walks and buttons. This is by far the nicest trail I have biked in a urban setting. What a wonderful asset for this area! I will be back!!!

Little Miami Scenic Trail

oregonia to xenia

June, 2018 by kenhaft

I spent the week riding this trail. I think the best section was the 20 miles from Oregonia to Xenia. I parked at the diner in Oregonia. I only passed a few joggers and cyclists on the trail the Friday morning I rode. There were fewer street crossings compared with the more southern part of the trail. The trail itself temporarily disappears briefly in Xenia. However, it was fairly easy to navigate around Xenia to find a coffee shop on Main St. (and Detroit St.). The ride back (South) was definitely easier as I perceived a very slightly downward grade. Kenneth Haft, Glen Allen, VA

Little Miami Scenic Trail

loved the trail

June, 2018 by kenhaft

I started at the Hamilton Township Park ( old 3c highway adjacent to Monkey Bar and Grill ). There is parking and fairly decent bathroom facilities. On day one, I rode 18 miles to Oregonia. The trail is in excellent shape and going north, the Little Miami River was nearly always visible on my right. There were a few walkers/joggers that did hinder my 16 mph progress. There were a few rural but trafficked streets to cross over. There were several deer along the trail and many rabbits. The restaurant in Oregonia was not open Monday at 8:30am, but there were nice rocking chairs on the porch.

Olentangy Trail

Columbus Connector

Great way to get from Worthington to German Village and everywhere in between.

Xenia-Jamestown Connector

Shade for the summer rides

June, 2018 by jdclark1282

Well-maintained tree-lined path through beautiful country. It’s flat, so it’s an easy place to log some miles.

Camp Chase Trail

Nice flat trail but no tree cover...

June, 2018 by awalton70

Rode this trail starting at Battelle (parking at the first entrance south of Alkire Rd in a very small lot to the right after entering the park) rode 3 miles east into Galloway and stopped at the tavern to cool off and have a drink. All in all this stretch of the trail was uneventful. Fairly flat with a little incline here and there. During this stretch we crossed Darby Creek Dr, Alkire Rd, Alton Rd., and finally Galloway Rd to get to the tavern. We also crossed the railroad tracks a couple of times. The trail was nicely paved and well maintained, however, there is absolutely no tree cover at all so you are riding the whole time in the blazing sun.
