Shaker Trace Trail

A nice park recreational trail

January, 2018 by orangedoug

While not a rail trail, I rode the Shaker Trace Trail in April of 2017. This trail is found in the Miami Whitewater Forest northwest of Cincinnati in Hamilton County, Ohio. Upon entering the park, there is a $5 user's fee, $3 if you are a Hamilton County (Ohio) resident. Season passes are available. The trail consists of two loops. I rode both of them twice for a total of 19 miles. The trail is relatively flat and the area is generally wide open. Riders could encounter strong head/tailwinds on windy days. This early in the season I passed just a few walkers on the inner loop of the trail. I had entire trail to myself throughout both laps of the outer loop.

unsure

July, 2017 by kristin.creager

They're only a couple places you can get onto this trail. It seems pretty inaccessible other than the start and end. Have a Specialized hybrid. and it did not handle well. Had to turn around shortly after starting. Wish this was paved!

Louisville Loop

Louisville Loop (m. 54.5 to m. 74.0)

July, 2017 by connie40023

This is a scenic trail through 4 beautiful parks and a 5 mile connecting section (all off road) all along Floyd's Fork in easy reach of Louisville Metro. The trail is nicely paved the entire way with access to water fountains, restrooms, and bicycle repair stations strategically placed along the way. The trail provides a nice mix of terrain ranging from flat to rolling to hilly. This is a family friendly destination with canoe / kayak and bike rentals along with shuttle service in the park. There are even play and spraygrounds in a couple of the parks.

B-Line Trail

Great Trail

May, 2017 by frank17

We ride this trail whenever we can and all the trails that join the B-Line. Well maintained and friendly folks from start to finish. Great Trail!!!

Dearborn Trails (Aurora - Lawrenceburg - Greendale)

Nice Trail

April, 2017 by mlehoffie

This trail was a nice trail for the beginning of the season. I am a casual rider and it is fairly short and flat trail. Nice tunnels and bridges. One thing I don't like is that it is not marked very well and if you are riding along the flood wall towards Hollywood Casino the trail just dead ends although the map says you can go further. If you ride into Aurora, the path is not marked and you have to make your own path through the town once you cross the large metal bridge.

Great trail

March, 2017 by emmis

3/20/17 rode my Trek X-Cal 29er roundtrip from N Street in Bedford to the Williams Dam - the trail is complete and well-maintained. A great resource for locals and a hidden gem for travelers. Bedford is a friendly small city and this location will be on my regular circuit.

I live near this trail and love the connection between the Clear Creek Trail and the B-line. :)

Louisville Loop

milemarker 14-25

October, 2016 by scibek

it has potential, under heavy construction as i write this; some new construction, some resurfacing the existing. interesting that the old part has been around long enough to need resurfacing before these new parts have been laid. the equipment on this sunday was parked trailside. on the west side of town beyond milemarker 14-25 in either direction, the trail presently doesn't appear to be rideable or perhaps even existing.

Louisville Loop

Beautiful but Challenging Scenic Ride

October, 2016 by mcalla7293

Entered this trail at Shelbyville road and completed a 30 mile round trip. The hills can be a real challenge if you are not accustomed to them. The surface is great and is a mix of asphalt and concrete. If you ride a recumbent where you sit back so far that you use a neck rest the expansion joints in the concrete can become annoying. The trail is very scenic with plenty of trail access points and several restrooms available along the way. When the whole Louisville Loop Trail is completed and circles all of Louisville (100 miles of trails I believe) this will be a real jewel for Kentucky.

Awesome discovery!

August, 2016 by andersondan

I started at U Street trailhead (the only parking that I am aware of) on a hybrid 15-speed. I think that this is the perfect bike for the trail. Skinny street tires might not do so well in the gravel. The gravel is very small and well packed though. There was a port-a-john at U Street and at Cockston Rd. I rode about 55 minutes, and turned around just past a new covered bridge. The steepest portion was from Cockston Rd, headed away from Bedford. Riding it in the highest gear, I got a good burn going. The trail is very scenic, with rock outcroppings, woodlands, farm fields, etc. I saw one deer, and several rabbits. Do take water, as there is none on the trail. This trail has a five-star potential. It was a little weedy as I got further from Bedford, and a large tree had fallen across it at one point. I look forward to riding this again, and to seeing the future extensions opened.

Nice Easy Ride!

August, 2016 by sweetcat

Biked from U street to Dams Rd. a bit father than 10 miles and then back to U street. We rode our mountain bikes and they handled the gravel easily. I didn't see any fresh water sources until the small market at the end so carry water as needed. There is at least one porta potty on the trail but the U street trail head sits very close to town with ample fast food places so you can easily make a pitstop before hitting the trail. Once on the trail we had a thunder storm blow through and took shelter under an overpass. Colorful flowers lined the path. It is obvious this trail is well maintained. The trail is quite an easy ride even stopping to take photos and snack we made the round trip in well under 2 hours. There is a lovely little covered bridge near the end and it was decorated with American flags and bows that was beautiful to see. The ride out from U street seems to be a bit more of a slight grade than the way back so it is even easier to make time heading home. It appears they are lengthening the trail as there are orange construction fences and barrels at the end blocking off what seems to be the next section. I can't wait to see what the trail will be like beyond when it is finished! I'm hoping for another 10 or 20 mile addition which would make this even more worth the 2 hour drive from home ( with all the construction :( on 37 )
