Little Miami Scenic Trail

great ride

August, 2017 by nelsonsmoke20

Love ¿ to get out to ride it, great for a man of 62 to ride 30 to 40 miles on. Do wish several sections were taken care of better, needs overgrowth cleaned out, and sticks cleaned up after storms. Also need certain people to follow rules about no ear buds or headsets, how do you announce you are passing if they can hear.

Little Miami Scenic Trail

One small problem with the trail.

July, 2017 by sundrifter71

I love the Little Miami bike trail , been riding it for years. It is a real asset to quality of life in Ohio. Not sure if it is just me but I have one issue with the trail.
The one small problem I speak of is the piles of horse manure left by the horses that people ride. If they would stay in the areas at the side of the trail that would be ok. But they ride on the paved areas. How about a diaper on your horse or at least stop and push the stuff over in the grass. After all they call it the Little Miami BIKE Trail not the Bridle path.

Miami & Erie Canal Towpath

Bloody Bridge South to St Mary's

July, 2017 by walkrunhike

The stretch from Bloody Bridge to St Mary's brings you very close to the canal, and the scenic farm land, forests, and ponds make it a memorable hike.

The Bloody Bridge parking situation is pretty carefree, so don't expect too much. Starting the trail from Bloody Bridge and going South is slightly confusing because you can take two routes.

First, you can walk next to the canal until you get to 66, but this part does not have gravel (at least when we went) and the grass may be high if they haven't mowed lately. Your other option is to walk the road that parallels the canal, until it dead ends into 66. We did both, but will probably stick to the road in the future because the path has some sink holes.

The big stops on this stretch are Lock 14, and the massive 40 acre ponds. Lock 14 is very scenic, and worth stopping to investigate. Per the Canal Booklet - Originally wooden, this lock was converted to concrete in 1907. The 2003 renovation includes a pedestrian bridge and parking lot. The booklet also mentions the 40 acre ponds were created as a result of the canal crossing the St. Marys river flood plane. The area next to the ponds is very peaceful, and is a standout feature on this part of the trail.

The Bloody Bridge to St Marys stretch of the Miami & Erie Canal Towpath really provides a nice scenic walk by the canal that I highly recommend. If you're looking for an off-cement walk, next to a canal and several large ponds, I think this hike is the perfect site.

Marion Tallgrass Trail

Now 11.22 miles long and is a beautiful and well maintained trail

June, 2017 by rramey

Now 11.22 miles long and is a beautiful and well maintained trail. I have rode the trail 3 times this week and have seen plenty of wildlife and heard many types of bird singing along the trail. It is great to see all the new benches and new blacktopped trail. The local community has done a great job developing the trail. I can't wait to see the next section done all the way to the Hardin County line.

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.

Great Miami River Trail

Tale of two trails

April, 2017 by jmk355

I rode only the northern end (Huber Heights to Piqua and back approx. 60 mi) and found it to be quite scenic and interesting ride. Surface generally in good shape and smooth. The southern portion of my trip, especially in Montgomery county was well signed and easy to follow where the trail diverts and how far to the next notable trailheads. The middle section (especially around Troy) was very poorly signed and more than once did I need to double back to find where the trail continued. The trail is marked every 1/4 mile, so in theory if you go on too far without the next mileage mark, you should wonder if you strayed, but that's not a reliable system. I particularly note the lack of signage at the Eldean covered bridge about the trail crossing the street and going behind a baseball diamond as an example. Signage picked up somewhat around Piqua.
The loop around Piqua made the perfect turning spot and provided many interesting sights throughout town.

Great Miami River Trail

First sentence is wrong

April, 2017 by daytoncapri

No, the Great Miami River Trail DOES NOT run from Piqua all the way south to Fairfield.

It comes to a dead halt at Middletown, and then picks up again in Hamilton, going south. That's a major gap, with no clear, safe way to bridge it.

It's a fine trail. I've ridden it often. It's particularly pretty along the river from north of Dayton to south of Piqua.

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.

Great Miami River Trail

March, 2017 by elrwillis

March 13, 2017: Good news for GMRT users. The I-75 renovation project in downtown Dayton is complete and the GMRT is no longer re-routed onto city streets. The original bike trail has been repaved and is open to riders.

PLUS, the two River Run Projects in downtown Dayton are nearly finished (Grand Opening of the River Runs scheduled for May 5th, 2017) The GMRT runs right past the two canoe/kayak river chutes next to RiverScape metro park.

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.
