Great-Little Trail Description

How can a trail be great and little? When it connects two of the Miami Valley's most popular regional trails, the Great Miami River Trail in the west, to the Little Miami Scenic Trail in the east. The Great-Little Trail is a ribbon of smooth asphalt, branching off from the Great Miami River Trail just north of Crains Run Park. The trail heads east, traversing the Medlar Preserve. The 2.5-mile section through the preserve involves challenging climbs through mature woodlands, and relaxing rides across fields and shrublands. 

Cross the Miamisburg Springboro Pike and ride the edge of Medlar View Elementary down to Byers Road. From Byers, the trail heads east, paralleling the wide Austin Boulevard. After passing over I-75, the trail comes to the Austin Landing retail district with its mix of department stores and restaurants. 

Continue along Austin Boulevard/ Austin Pike to Social Row Road. The paved path parallels Social Row Road, whein Washington Township, where it comes to an unceremonious end. Plans are underway to extend the trail through Butler and Warren Counties until it reaches the Little Miami Scenic Trail.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is free at the Medlar Preserve (4558 Medlar Rd, Miamisburg).
