Dearborn Trails (Aurora - Lawrenceburg - Greendale) Description

The Greendale segment runs 1 mile between Walnut Street and Hollywood Boulevard at Eads Parkway, paralleling Eads Parkway/US 50 on the east side. There's a short gap (0.6 mile) in the trail between Lawrenceburg and Greendale. The Lawrenceburg–Auroa segment runs 3.6 miles between E. William Street at E. High Street in Lawrenceburg and Manchester Landing Street on the north edge of Aurora. You can continue via road through Aurora (0.7 mile), heading south on Decatur Street/SR 56 to just south of its intersection with Market Street. On the river side of the road, the trail continues 0.7 mile south through Lesko Park.

Par of the paved rail-trail parallels an active CSX rail line along the scenic Ohio River. There are a few bridge crossings, Wilson Creek in Aurora and a restored 1882 bridge across Tanners Creek. Between Lawrenceburg and Aurora the trail passes through a wooded corridor and is more rural. Watch for wildlife in this section, including deer, beaver, foxes and shorebirds along the river wetlands.

Parking and Trail Access

In Lawrenceburg parking is at New and Elm streets, the end of Walnut Street and at Aep Drive by the river. In Aurora park at Lesko Park, just south of town center along Decatur Street/SR 56 and Manchester Landing Street.

Dearborn Trails (Aurora - Lawrenceburg - Greendale) Reviews

Most of the trail is nice with the beauty of nature, flat pavement, fun tunnels and bridges. All that is nice for the family. But it would be better if it were all connected without having to go on the road. That part scared my 9 year old. Otherwise, It was nice to get ice cream in Aurora and there’s a strongs pizza right by the lawrenceburg trailhead. And parking is free and plentiful.

Nice trail, the small section I was able to ride today (thus 4 stars) - but sadly missing alerts that it's currently mostly closed due to roadwork!! (Thus only 4 stars).

Grateful to have this gem in my county. We utilize this entire trail for walking & biking whenever the weather allows.


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.

...and while yes, it was closed for a while, it was open today and just fine, lovely in fact. I rode between the Hollywood Casino and The George street bridge and had a wonderful time. With the exception of the part that goes right by the power plant, this is scenic, lush and lovely with two wonderful bridges I adore and a few tunnels. I have often walked this around dusk and early evening during the summer to watch all the tens of thousands of fireflies all lit up and blinking, it is truly magical.

To be clear, the trail is just fine now, and as lovely as ever. Enjoy. 4/19/2016 1731 Eastern.

This has been closed for some time but would you think they would post it. Won't go back to this area again even if they open it. Shame on the chamber of commerce !
