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.
Did a 50 mile out and back from trailhead start off highway 32. I’d say 80% in the shade even in the heat of the day. A few places to get water. Lots of places to eat right off the trail. Pretty easy to ride hard, not a lot of traffic. I’m not a big trail rider but this one is pretty good.
My wife and I did the section from Middletown to Miamisburg today. Parked at Carmody Road lot and traveled to downtown Miamisburg. Total time was 5 hours, however this includes a lunch break, sightseeing in Miamisburg and a historic log cabin. Scenic and well maintained we highly recommend this trail! Plenty to discover and enjoy!
Most of the path is paved now, except the last 1/2 - mile from the south end near Melvin Rd. Great flat path riding thru corn fields and some tree lined areas.
This connector is closed in connection with construction of a bike/pedestrian bridge over the Little Miami River at the end of Little Miami trail. I had intended to ride at Otto Armleder then take the connector to Lunken Bikepath, but no dice. I guess this won’t open until the whole bridge is done?
Kid-friendly! The trail is not overcrowded, beautiful scenery and under a lot of shade.
We were there in May of 2021, and they were adding a mile or so of trail along route 73, so you’ll don’t have to ride on the very busy road. It will connect the Trenton to Franklin parts of trail.
Rode this trail in first week of July. It had just flooded so it was very dirty and I could smell what the water had left on the trail. It was not pleasant to say the least. The trail itself is small and hardly any shading for it was quite hot that day. I would say if you like short rides then i would recommend this trail but do it early in the day or late unless you love being in the sun.
First time on this trail and right off the bat it was going to be a good ride. Loved the hole route and to be honest never truly knew the extent of altitude change before riding. Got into the ride and felt good with the hills going out but at the end with the huge hill coming down I knew turning around and coming back was going to be a burner. With my riding partner we made the hill and stayed in the saddle the hole time in low gear and made it to the top, thank goodness for the hydrants giving me a focal point to achieve while getting to the top. Rest of the ride went real quick and easy. It is a great leg day workout to get completed on a bike.
I rode around the various loop configurations to make sure I covered all the trails and ended up biking 4.3 miles. Maybe doing the outside loop alone would be the 2 miles written in the description. Some of the surface was in better shape than other places. One could go in the woods by the river to hike or bike on non-paved trails. It is out in the open. A playground, central building and a dog park is also within the park.
I was here in the latter part of May and the Armleder-Lunken Connector Trail was blocked off. It said the trail was closed to work on the bridge. I went on Wooster Pike and saw another cyclist, asking him to verify directions to the Lunken Airport Trail. He was heading there, so we went together, but then went different directions around that loop. That was so nice of him.
This is a nice trail with a good paved surface, but no matter which direction you go, you will encounter some hills. It would be a good starting point for hill training, since road traffic would not be a problem.
I started at the southern end of the greenway near the Park and Ride area by the bus terminal (7832 Five Mile Road). This was at the top of the hill, so the ride began with a nice decent. Just keep in mind that you have to go back up the hill when you return to your vehicle. It's about a tenth of a mile long. When going north, the trail goes past a medical complex before it crosses to the west side of Five Mile Road, where more bushes and trees line the route.
After getting to the northern endpoint at Newtown Road, where restrooms are located, I turned around and made the return trip. That hill is more of a long and steady climb. I did take the loop around the Anderson Center and had to wait until 2 families of Canada geese and goslings crossed the path. I started again, but a little too soon, since one parent really hissed at me.
Being able to hop on and off the trail at various places is a good plus for the area. The round trip of 5.15 miles took me about 30 minutes, which included time for photos and the geese crossing.
I parked at the Harmony Hill Dairy House, which is east on the long, stone driveway once you arrive at the address via Google map or whatever: 299 S 3rd St. If you use the Community Park, you would have to turn left out of the park and cross traffic and immediately go up a hill, besides other hills. I didn't look into the Community Parking Lot. It was a flat 1/2 mile ride from the Harmony Hill Dairy House to the trailhead.
The trail was nice, sometimes under shade and sometimes out in the open. It is hilly no matter which way you go. One could park/camp at the East Fork State Park and join the trail mid way and go in either direction, since the trail borders the camping registration area. The shoulders were adequate when on the roads. I pedaled the route around 11 am and the traffic was light. On the west endpoint, the trail seemed to go onto residential streets past the houses, but the red line on TraiLink had ended. It will be an even better trail when it is extended.
