Monon Trail

Round trip 54 miles

July, 2024 by tjmodd

Rode the full length of this trail round trip. It’s well maintained and used by many people. Great surface for road bikes. Lots of places along the trail to stop and eat. Nice bridges. Lots of road crossings but many people were courteous and would stop for bike crossing, runners, and walkers. Equal mix of shade and sun. This is a great trail.

Hamilton Beltline Recreational Trail

A Nice Local Trail in Need of Further Development

July, 2024 by orangedoug

After parking in Hamilton, Ohio's Jim Grimm Park located on Cleveland Avenue, I rode 2.4 miles on an out-and-back ride on the Hamilton Beltline Recreational Trail. The current trail is a combination of the first and second phases of a planned 3.5 mile loop on the west bank of the Great Miami River. Eventually plans include an off-road connection to the Great Miami River Recreational Trail located on the east bank of the river.

Jim Grimm Park which is located in the center of the current 1.15 mile trail. The trail runs between Eaton Avenue and North B Street which runs along the Great Miami River. This tree-lined trail runs through a ravine in which Twomile Creek runs toward emptying into the Great Miami River. This asphalt trail is in very good condition and seems to be popular with walkers and joggers. I think that it would probably get more cyclists riding it if the entire planned loop were to be completed. This would include completing an off-road or separated bike lane along B Street and over either the Black Street or Main Street bridges in order to connect to the Great Miami River Recreational Trail. Early plans of the trail’s route showed a trail connection to these bridges along the banks of the Great Miami River. However, when I reached B Street there was a sign indicating the end of the trail and there was no indication of any route paralleling B street to the bridges. However, after looking at a photo I took at B Street, and also looking at images from Google Earth, the sidewalk on the west side of B Street appears to have been widened to accommodate both pedestrian and bike traffic. I may have to ride this trail again to explore this possibility.

From what little research I’ve done, the other phases of the project to extend the trail beyond Eaton Ave. are well behind schedule so perhaps local interest in completing the trail has waned. The Hamilton Beltline Recreational Trail seems to be a trail that local residents like, but at this time, it is not one I would recommend going out of your way to ride.

White River Wapahani Trail

Beautiful, but …

June, 2024 by dmarkwillis

This would-be beautiful trail is ideally situated and features lovely vistas of Indianapolis, views of the White River and a curvy paved path through a shady, wooded landscape. Sadly, a good portion of it is marred by countless homeless encampments and the resulting undisposed of trash. A sad reflection on our city and its leadership. The trail was also dangerously scattered with river debris and thick loose sand in several low spots. Ride for curiosity’s sake, but with caution.

Great Miami River Trail

Pavement Cracks

June, 2024 by mr.dave witt

Been riding this trail for decades and have noticed that sections between Franklin and Dayton have pavement cracks every 30-50 ft that are 2-4 inches in width. It looks like at in the past they were filled in with asphalt, now the asphalt has sunk down in. Yesterday was a jarring and unsettling ride, probably will start in downtown Dayton and ride north until they fix these cracks.

B&O Trail

B&O Trail

June, 2024 by kevin.gruneisen

2024 - we live 1 mile from the trail and can get to it pretty easy. The ride is great. All asphalt and in great shape. Several main roads have to be crossed but all have signal lights to help. Tilden is no longer the end of the trail. There is another ~ 3 miles of new asphalt west of Tilden. A new parking lot was added at 300/900. Enjoy. It’s or go to for weekly rides.

Great Miami River Trail

Ran this trail twice

May, 2024 by luv_mlb25

I have ran this trail from top to bottom twice. This included the portion that is known as Canal Feeder Trail in Sidney (not labeled on this map, but said to be part of the trail) and also includes the last little bit from Hamilton to Fairfield.

Last year when i ran it, it was labeled as being 99 miles, however, this year they have it marked as being 87 miles...not sure where the other 12 miles went from the year before...but I measured it out to be 95.72 miles. This includes any and all spurs or any branches off from the main trail. Canal feeder trail is 4.66 miles (this includes the whole trail, across Vandemark Rd where the trail extends and dead ends in the woods with no place to go but back to the Vandemark Rd parking lot). Then starting at Swift Run in Piqua and ending at Trenton (including Canal Feeder) measures 84.55 miles. The last little bit from Reigart Road in Hamilton to Groh Ln in Fairfield measures 11.17 miles.

I frequently run the portions running from Piqua to Vandalia. This portion is mostly wooded and protected. Once it gets in to Dayton it gets a little tricky with more flood bank runs and city views. The run from Marina Drive to Miami St is a little boring but not as boring as the path from Carmody to Trenton that measures 6.2 miles in distance.

I have this trail broke down in to miles pretty good with landmarks. If anyone ever wants to know distance measures, I'm your gal.

The last leg of the map runs Hamilton to Fairfield, and honestly may be the best part through heavy woods and beautiful landscapes.

Enjoy!

White River Wapahani Trail

pretty good

May, 2024 by fly777300

Started the trail at Washington street and proceeded south. Trail was clean and clear until Oliver avenue then multiple tents with homeless folks under the overpasses. The trail gets narrower toward Kentucky avenue overpass and it turns into dirt and wooded area. I came back toward the north and the trail is very nice and clean.

Way less traffic than the Monon trail, had a great time riding my ride here.

Wilbur Wright Trail

New section at Mooreland, IN.

April, 2024 by jeffstov

There is a very new section on the Wilbur Wright Trail open between N County Road 625E and N county Road 800 E going through Mooreland . There is another section that is in the process of being cleared to the west of CR 600 E.. Looking forward to the day when I can ride from New castle all the way to Losantville where the Wilbur Wright will connect with the Cardinal Greenway.
