The volunteers do a good job of managing the trail, thank you to the reviewer who helps keep the trail maintained. Yes, after a storm, there will be branches and leaves, but it's all part of the experience.
I am one of those riders who uses headphones while I ride. I do not turn my music up loudly, and can clearly hear if someone calls out to pass. They also come out of my ears when crossing a road. I also call out when passing. Only thing is, maybe 50% of folks actually tell you they're passing.
I've ridden the entire trail, not all at once though. My favorite ride is Spring Valley - Corwin - Spring Valley - Xenia
For running purposes it has a decent biking trail through a thin veil of trees.
I rode this section of the trail north in August 2017. Like the rest of the trail it is well-maintained and signed. The Middletown section is the most industrial portion of the trail. There is a 1.5 mile gap between where the trail ends north of Middletown and where it picks up again just south of Franklin, Ohio. This gap can be bridged by riding the shoulder of Route 73 until you reach Baxter Road. Route 73 is a divided roadway so the cars and trucks are traveling at high speed. Fortunately, the shoulder is pretty wide and the distance can be covered in 10-15 minutes. Once you are back on the trail heading north, you pass through the cities/towns of Franklin, Miamisburg, and West Carrolton before reaching Dayton and the UD campus. Like much of this trail the towns and cities nearby embrace the trail and cater to cyclists. This section of the trail is the least shaded of all, so those with fair skin definitely should lather up with sunscreen. You might also want to consider the temperature forecast before riding this section as it was pretty hot during my August ride.
This is a great trail. The surface is in good shape and the route is well signed. Despite traveling through the suburban/urban setting of the Great Miami River watershed much of this ride feels as though you are in a park like setting. Worth checking out more than once.
On April 2, 2017, I rode the southern portion of the Great Miami River Trail from Fairfield, OH to Rentschler Forest MetroPark at the Reigart Road Entrance northeast of Hamilton, OH. Here the trail ends as there is a gap from here to the northern portion of the trail which picks up south of Middletown, OH. The round trip was just over 20 miles. This section of the trail is well marked. I was especially impressed that almost all of the driftwood and litter debris that the Great Miami River had deposited along the trail when the water level had been higher, had been moved off of the trail by either volunteers or City of Hamilton workers. It is nice to see the pride in what the trail means to the community. I'd love to see the gap between the Hamilton and Middleton sections of this trail completed and the GMRT become one continuous trail.
I had to tell all my friends about this! I hear there is a hotel motel or bed and breakfast and I think bike shop bike club opening right on the bike path Xenia Jamestown connector right on Verity St. & S. Church. That is so cool and convenient, we use to have to travel back to Xenia or Jeffersonville that is not on the east portion bike path. I will also be the first to try the inn, tent or room with hot water and soft bed and air conditioning or heat depending when I go.
This trail I thought might be sketchy in quality and safety, but I was pleasantly surprised and I thought (at least in the muncie area) it was safe and well maintained. I would not hesitate to ride this again. Now I am not an avid road cyclist, but compared to other trails I've seen this one is superb. Cant wait to ride this again.
This is about a 25 mile flat ride from Verona to Trotwood, OH. I like the location of this trail. If you are going to or from somewhere on US 70 it's easy to get off in Brookville do an easy 25 and continue on your way.
The name is a misnomer I've never seen a wolf or a creek on this ride! If you start in Verona just park on the street or at the grain elevator there is no formal trail head. Well kept trail, nice country scenery good restaurant, near nice motel in Brookville. You can leave your car there or in the lot across the street.
I plan to extend my next ride by taking some of the side country roads, little traffic, much to be explored.
You'll want a mountain bike, but easy riding.
Rode from Richmond, IN to Williamsburg, IN 29.5 miles round trip. Great trail all paved, level, mostly shaded! Rest stops along the way with water, porta potties and historical info every 5 miles! Very enjoyable!
Rode from Urbana to Springfield. Nice, flat paved trail. Very little traffic in the middle of the week. Easy trail to ride.
I volunteer with Friends of LMSP to help maintain and improve the trail. The LMSP covers 50 miles of the Little Miami Scenic Trail between Xenia and Cincinnati. The recent review copied below prompts me to comment. We volunteers try our best to improve the trail. But we are only volunteers and cannot do everything and are limited to what issues we can address since we are not managing the trail--Ohio Dept. of Natural Resources is the owner. We are limited by ODNR rules and by our limited number of volunteers and financial resources.
Admittedly some sections of our trail are in need of more attention than others. Where volunteers are available we do the best we can. Knowing which sections that trail users feel need the more attention would be helpful.
Keeping debris off the trail is a constant problem since it's a tree lined trail--both a blessing and a curse. But we volunteers regularly use a towed-behind blower to blow the trail. A second blower was recently purchased in order to more frequently clean the trail.
Reducing the overgrowth of the trail has been a major effort of us volunteers over the past 8 years since we were formed as a non-profit group. Mowing along the sides of the trail is the only practical way to reduce the overgrowth and prevent it's return. Broad application of herbicides is not permitted. The mowing is the responsibility of the ODNR based at Caesar's Creek State Park. Concerns about lack of mowing and the resulting overgrowth need to be directed to them.
Rules for trail users are set by ODNR. The rules prohibit headphones for cyclists but not for other users. Yes, it's frustrating for cyclists to pass someone on the trail and announce "passing on your left" only to be unheard since that person is wearing headphones. Until rules are changed all trail users who want to wear headphones should do so in only one ear for safety sake of all users.
Users of the LMSP trail who want the trail to be maintained and improved should become members of our friends organization, donate and/or volunteer to help by going to our website, www.littlemiamistatepark.org or simply www.flmsp.org.
Little Miami Scenic Trail
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.
