Armleder Park Trail Description

The Armleder Park Trail loops along a wide, paved route through the open meadows of the park, located east of Cincinnati. At the southeast end, you'll find an overlook of the Little Miami River. Within the park's 238 acres, you'll also find offers hiking trails, a playground, picnic shelters, recreational fields, and an off-leash dog park.

Southwest of the park, on the other side of OH 125, you can pick up the Lunken Airport Bike Path, which loops around Cincinnati's municipal airport.

Armleder Park Trail Reviews

Last May I once again rode through this park. I have previously ridden through this park twice on journeys along the Ohio to Erie Trail. Using the trails of the park and its airport connecting trail is a good way to avoid a difficult-to-navigate-safely double traffic circle near Lunken Airport where Wilmer Avenue and Wooster Road intersect with Beechmont Avenue.

The Otto Armleder Memorial Park and Recreation Complex is a Hamilton County MetroPark that sits along the Little Miami River and in the landing and flight path of Cincinnati's Lunken Airport. This airport serves primarily private planes and corporate jets and because of this the land the park occupies probably would not be a good fit for residential housing.

The park consists of soccer fields, picnic areas, a dog park, a 1.9 mile biking/hiking loop and a few addition pathways along the athletic fields that can be added to the primary bike/hike loop for variety and additional length. There is also a 1.2 mile connector bike/hike route that connects to the Lunken Airport Bike Path.

This is a nice little park, and riding the primary loop trail was fun but it certainly didn't take very long to complete. Adding in the additional pathways in the athletic fields and taking some pictures took up some additional time but it was a pretty quick ride. If you are looking for a safe, flat pathway to work on speed and distance this very well could be the trail for you. I was here on a Tuesday afternoon and there were only 4 other riders/walkers I encountered. It may be much more crowded at other times or on the weekend. Multiple laps would add to your mileage totals. After finishing a once around all the parks pathways, I took the connector trail and rode around Lunken Airport. Parts of that trail seemed much busier than the one in the park.

A very nice flat trail. Beautiful fields with plenty of wildlife line the path. A fun park for kids to use at the end of a ride. The signage could be a little better but the map at the beginning is helpful.

I ride the Lunken trail and then take the connector under Beechmont ave. into "The Otto". AS soon as one crosses the Duck Creek bridge on the Connector Trail the aroma of drying mud is replaced by the sweetest smell of (apparently) wildflowers. This great aroma is a key to my enjoyment of these two trails. Enjoy!

The loop is only 2 miles long, but the setting is beautiful, an oasis in a rather ugly part of town. The connection to Lunken is complete so you can think of this as a bonus after riding around the airport.

Bike riders be aware of dogs on long leaches / dogs not on leaches. Path leading to Lunken is complete but there is a gate with padlock seperating the 2 facilities. Looks to open soon.

Lots of bugs around dusk, especially after rain.

Very flat and wide asphalt trail. There is one main loop and several cut throughs. Mostly surrounded by meadows, but the far east end there's a Little Miami River overlook. Hope to get out and GPS map this one, the Google maps aren't up to date.
