When completed, the Wasson Way trail will span 7.6 miles from Victory Parkway (near Xavier University) to the Little Miami Scenic Trail in Newtown. The latter spans 78 miles from Cincinnati to Springfield and is in the Rail-Trail Hall of Fame.
The first section of the developing Wasson Way trail opened in 2018 in the eastern Cincinnati neighborhood of Hyde Park. It measured less than a mile, running along Withrow High School, as well as shops and restaurants, as it traveled from Madison Road to Tamarack Avenue, near Dana Avenue and I-71. The second phase extended the trail west to Montgomery Road, and includes a bridge over I-71. Phase 3 extended it east, doubling the length by adding another 1.2 miles stretching to Marburg Avenue.
The most recent additions to the trail, Phases 4 & 5, were finished in the winter of 2021, which continued the trail to the east into the wooded grounds of Ault Park. The trail currently ends at Old Red Bank Road, a short distance away from the start of the Fairfax Bike Trail at Woodland Road. The next phase of the trail is set to add another 0.8 miles, with a targeted completion date of early 2024.
Parking is available in the back lot of Withrow High School (2488 Madison Road, Cincinnati), near the football field and baseball diamonds.
