Five Mile Trail Description

To cover the five miles suggested by the name of this trail, one has to travel out to the opposite end and back again. The trail is located in Anderson Township, about 13 miles southeast of Cincinnati. It's paved surface, convenient location and ample greenery on either side make it the township's most popular recreation trails.  Starting on Newtown Road, the paved trail begins with an elevation gain in its first thousand or so feet, followed by a gentle decline leading to the Al Mink Memorial Bridge over Hunley Road. The name of the bridge honors Anderson's late trail coordinator, who passed away before the completion of this trail.

The trail continues shielded from the hum of traffic and the surrounding neighborhoods by the combination of trees and bushes,  but opens up at Clough Pike, where it begins to parallel Five Mile Road. At State Road, the trail switches over from the west side of the street (and the Anderson Branch Library) to the east side, where it enters the campus of the Anderson Health Plex. The off-street segment of the trail ends near the building, and a signed on-street lane directs pedestrians and cyclists to a short, off-street segment and the trail's conclusion at the Anderson Center, the township's community center and events space.

Parking and Trail Access

At the north end of the trail, parking and restrooms can be found on Newtown Road beside (but separate from) the Heritage Universalist Unitarian Church parking lot (church's address is 2710 Newton Road). At the south end, find parking at the Anderson Center (7850 Five Mile Road).
