Triplett Pathway

This Trail Seems to be Part of a Developing Trail Loop in Bluffton, Ohio

July, 2024 by orangedoug

I rode a total of 2.84 miles on two out & back rides on the two sections of the Triplett Pathway in Bluffton, Ohio. I started by riding the southern portion of Triplett Pathway that runs out of Bluffton Village Park which passes under Interstate 75 along the edge of Riley Creek, and enters into a residential neighborhood at East College Avenue where the trail actually ends. To connect to the northern section of the pathway you would have to ride on some residential streets but the route was not marked with a sign at the E. College Ave. intersection. Thus, I had to drive to the northern section trailhead located at the Village Arboretum next to Cobb Lake in order to ride from there to see if I could find the street route to this southern portion of the trail. Riding from the arboretum, the trail and the on-road route is better signed and was easy to connect to the section leading to Bluffton Village Park.

It appears that with the Triplett Pathway and the Lions Way Bike & Pedestrian Pathway the Village of Bluffton is creating a multi-use loop that will connect Bluffton University students and Bluffton residents with the village's parks, restaurants (mostly fast food), and other village amenities. The off-road portions of the trail are fairly new and are in very rideable shape. The on-road portions of these trails are on lightly trafficked streets, but are not necessarily well-marked with signs so at this time having a map app would be a must to find your way should you get lost. I would like to return to Bluffton again, to see if I could complete this potential trail loop.

Little Miami Scenic Trail

lost ring

July, 2024 by burkartc803

Hello, we finished our lovely ride July 7 and returned to our car parked in Corwin. As my husband took off his glove, his wedding band came off as well and flew somewhere. It is gold with an inscription. We searched for a few hours as well as a few residents of Corwin and other bikers as they saw us searching. We returned today with a metal detector. I think it must have attached itself to a car. Please let me know if found

South Adams Trail

I rode this trail on 07/01 and they are about to pour the asphalt on it.
It is pretty wide trail and very bike/ walker friendly.

Thank you

East Bank Path

Another Trail Along the Shore of Grand Lake

July, 2024 by orangedoug

This path is located on the eastern shore of Grand Lake in Grand Lake St Marys State Park. The trail parallels the East Bank Parkway which features 3 picnic shelters with water and parking lots and great views of this large lake. Personally I think this path was created to keep joggers and cyclists off the parkway during the shelters’ busiest times – weekends and holidays during the summer.

The pathway is in fair shape but functional. There are quite a number of spots where wide cracks run across the entire width of the trail. Patching or resurfacing the trail would improve the ride. I could see this trail becoming a part of a larger network of trails that would encircle Grand Lake. Coupled with the Franklin Township Greenway Trail and the West Bank Trail the potential network is about half complete. Since I’m not a resident of the area perhaps there is a feeling that the loop around Grand Lake is already complete. However, several of the roads around Grand Lake carry cars at high speeds and do not have wide shoulders or bike lanes which makes an out-of-towner such as myself hesitant to ride them.

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.

Xenia-Jamestown Connector

Xenia-Jamestown Connector

June, 2024 by charlesgagel

Left Xenia Station and headed to this trail (Ohio Trail #4). Directions to the trail not obvious from the station. Had to go about 1+ blocks on Washington St. to enter. Once on the trail, it was smooth, brand new asphalt. Nice canopy of trees and lots of farmland to view heading to Jamestown. As of today, could only ride to Stringtown Rd. as they are laying new pavement east of there. Will be a great ride once finished.

Xenia-Jamestown Connector

Peaceful, scenic trail

June, 2024 by tinamargo

We rode this trail for the second time on a perfect day in May. In summer 2022 it really had been “the trail to nowhere” so we were pleasantly surprised to discover that the trail has been extended by about 3 miles, taking you under I-71 to the village of Octa, where we found a picnic shelter and portalets (note: no running water). It was the middle of a weekday and we encountered only 8 other cyclists in total on the route out from Xenia and back.

Wright Brothers Huffman Prairie Bikeway

Back-pedal through time

May, 2024 by brea.denise

The bike path leading to Huffman Prairie offers a scenic journey, albeit with minimal shade, so lather up on sunscreen. Its gentle terrain makes for an easy ride, perfect for cyclists of all levels. As you pedal through, you're reminded of the profound historical connection between bicycles and the Wright brothers, who honed their flying skills on these very grounds. It's not just a bike path; it's a ride through history.

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!

Prairie Grass Trail

Day 3

May, 2024 by jarboe

A wonderful trail that slowly climbs out of Xenia. It begins with a canopy of trees and later turns to fields. An Inn on the trail in Cedarville warmly welcomes cyclists for a rest stop. It saved us from a passing thunderstorm.
Five Stars. We rode 51 miles.

Xenia-Jamestown Connector

Day 1

May, 2024 by jarboe

Xenia is a casual cyclist's version of heaven. Five trails radiate out of this town. "Xenia Station" is the nucleus. Find yourselves a nice bed and breakfast and spend the week.

This is a great warm up trial. Nicely maintained. We did 42 miles in May 2024 to start our week.

Little Miami Scenic Trail

Days 2 and 4

May, 2024 by jarboe

South out of Xenia this trail deserves a five-star-plus rating. Well maintained, wooded with a river, you will be tempted to ride this forever. We did 60 miles.

North is a little more urban but still a five-star trial. We did 41 miles. Thank you, Xenia!
