James Ranch Connecting Spur Description

The James Ranch Connecting Spur provides an important link between two major trails spiraling out of the trail hub of Xenia. On its east end, the trail connects to the Little Miami Scenic Trail, which spans more than 70 miles. (Note that on this end of the spur, the route becomes sidewalk, whereas the rest of the trail has an asphalt surface.)

On its west end, the spur connects to the 15-mile Creekside Trail, which heads to Dayton.

In between, the paved pathway winds through Greene County's fairgrounds. At the Fairgrounds Recreation Center, you'll find a playground, picnic tables, tennis courts, soccer fields, basketball courts, and horseshoe pits.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at the Fairgrounds Recreation Center (210 Fairground Road).

Preferred Link between Little Miami Scenic and Creekside Trail

As I was told by a local resident, this is the preferred route Xenia residents use to connect between the Creekside and Little Miami Scenic Trails as it avoids the bike lane on busy Detroit Street in Xenia. Listed here on TrailLink as .3 miles my tracking between the two trails came in at 1.25 miles. I think that TrailLink measured from Fairground Road on the fairgrounds to the Creekside Trail rather than the entire length of the connection between the two trails. There is a small residential on-street section from Alameda Drive to the McDonald's on Detroit Street. I imagine that this trail probably is closed during the Greene County Fair. Again this is one of those trails that might be important locally, but not a trail people would travel to Xenia to ride, so why is it listed here?
