When complete, the Hamilton Belt Line Trail will wrap 3 miles along a former CSX right-of-way around the west side of Hamilton. In its heyday, Champion Paper Mill used the line track to move coal and products. The first 2 phases are complete for a total of 1.5 miles of paved trail from Cleveland Avenue to B Street near Spooky Nook Champion Mill. The first half-mile of trail was completed in the summer of 2021 and another mile was added in 2022.
Already the trail is a popular place for families to get outside. Surrounded by greenery, it features a bridge over Two Mile Creek. As a bonus, there's an ice-cream shop on Eaton Avenue. Phase 3 is funded and is expected to be finished by 2024. A connection to the Great Miami River Trail is planned as part of phase 4.
Parking is available at Jim Grimm Park (1025 Cleveland Ave, Hamilton). Take Cleveland Avenue north to the start of the trail (1025 Cleveland Ave, Hamilton).
Trail is now 1.15 miles in length with easy access at both ends and in the middle. Short length but pleasant ride.
