Mill Creek Greenway Trail Description

The growing Mill Creek Greenway Trail follows one of Cincinnati’s most important urban waterways and will one day stretch 14 miles through the city's northern neighborhoods. Groundwork Cincinnati is a community-based nonprofit that works to develop the trail and maintain it.

Currently, the trail is open in two short, disconnected segments. The southern section is nearly 2 miles long through mostly light industrial development. A highlight of the route is Salway Park, which boasts some excellent habitat restoration projects as well as a superb public art installation. Farther northeast, another mile of trail reaches Caldwell Park. Both sections are paved.

Parking and Trail Access

To reach the two Salway Park trailheads from Interstate 75, take the Mitchell Avenue exit. Go north on Mitchell toward Spring Grove Avenue. Take a left on Spring Grove Avenue. The first trailhead is just over 0.5 mile on the left. The second trailhead is only another 0.3 mile farther on the left.

Parking is also available on the north end of the trail in Caldwell Park (415 W. North Bend Road).

Mill Creek Greenway Trail Reviews

The bike trail itself was fine for my wife and myself since we are both relatively new at cycling off road. Not overly challenging, but simple to master. Our biggest concern was the physical conditioning of the grounds that directly abutted the trail. High grasses, dandelions, weeds, overflowing trash receptacles, broken glass are just a few examples of what we saw as a lack of routine grounds care and/or maintenance.
