Wasson Way Description

The first section of the developing Wasson Way trail opened in 2018 in the eastern Cincinnati neighborhood of Hyde Park. Although less than a mile, the paved pathway runs along Withrow High School, as well as shops and restaurants, as it travels from Madison Road to Tamarack Avenue, near Dana Avenue and I-71.

When completed, the 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.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available in the back lot of Withrow High School (2488 Madison Road, Cincinnati), near the football field and baseball diamonds.

partially finished


I really enjoy how they finished this section of trail. I use it as my daily commute and really enjoy it

Not Yet Long Enough to Make it Worth a Trip


I rode this trail in my ongoing quest to ride all of the Ohio trails listed at TrailLink.com. This trail was listed late in 2018 after I had thought I had ridden all of the TrailLink.com-listed trails in the Cincinnati area.

This 0.6 miles of trail is the first phase of a trail designed to run about 7.2 miles from Xavier University east toward and connecting to the Little Miami Scenic Trail (part of the Ohio to Erie Trail route.). The trail stretches from Madison Road near the Rookwood Commons & Pavilion shopping plaza to Tamarack Avenue near the Withrow High School Athletic Fields. Phase 2 of this trail is currently under construction which will feature a bridge over I-71 and head west, hopefully to its final destination of Xavier University. If phase 3 is to expand eastward, the first obstacle to be overcome will be navigating through the traffic on Madison Road which seems very busy.

At this point I don’t think this trail is worth a trip to walk or ride until more phases of the trail are complete, or unless you live in this neighborhood.
