Armleder-Lunken Connector Trail Description

This recreational path connects the Armleder Park Trail in Otto Armleder Memorial Park to the Lunken Airport Bike Path, which then connects with the Ohio River Trail. The Beechmont Bridge Connector across the Little Miami River is completed and connects the trail with the 78-mile Little Miami Scenic Trail.

The trail begins at the parking lot south of the dog park, and heads south and east. It is partially shaded as it crosses over Duck Creek ducks under Beachmont Avenue. The final stretch of the trail to the airport parallels the Little Miami River, although the river is screened by the lush riparian trees. The paved trail has two lanes, one for each direction of bike-ped traffic.  

Parking and Trail Access

Park in the Otto Armleder Memorial Park and Recreation Complex (5057 Wooster Pike, Cincinnati, OH). Enter the park on Armleder Road, take a right at the intersection and drive past the dog park parking lot, and park at the next parking lot you come to. This is also the trailhead for the Armleder Trail which loops around the park.

Armleder-Lunken Connector Trail Reviews

Currently closed (late July 2021)

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?

Beautiful Trail

I rode my bike here and it was just absolutely gorgeous! Beautiful wild life and the trail is very nice and smooth, and pretty flat, not too hilly. Perfect for people who want to enjoy the ride!

Use this Trail to Avoid Beechmont Circle

I rode the Armleder-Lunken Connector Trail in Otto Armleder Park in Cincinnati, Ohio as part of my southbound Ohio to Erie Trail (OTET) route ride. Officially, this trail is not recognized as one of the trails of the OTET route, but I would recommend it to all who are attempting to ride the Ohio to Erie Trail as it avoids a dangerous traffic circle near Lunken Airport. Having ridden the OTET twice before, I consider Beechmont Circle a dangerous intersection for all cyclists because this traffic circle has a number of buildings and trees in its center which block a driver's view of what is up ahead/around the corner in the circle. Combine these blind curves with fairly high speeds within the circle and the interchange can be hazardous to cyclists. Therefore, I have sought out a way to avoid this intersection all together. My solution is to connect to the Lunken Airport Bike Path or Wooster Road/Wooster Pike (depending on your direction of travel) by using the Airport Connector Trail between Lunken Airport and Armleder Park. If you take this trail you avoid Beechmont Circle completely.
