Wright Brothers Huffman Prairie Bikeway Description

The Wright Brothers Huffman Prairie Bikeway runs from South Street in downtown Fairborn, along the north side of Kauffman Avenue adjacent to an active rail line, to National Road. At that point, the trail crosses Kauffman to the south side and follows the fence line of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base to the Wright Brothers Memorial. There the trail connects to the Mad River Trail, which extends into downtown Dayton.

Both trails are part of the 330-mile Miami Valley trail system, one of the nation's largest networks of paved, off-street trails.

Parking is available at:

  • the plaza at Kauffman Avenue and West Garland Drive
  • the K20 parking lot at Wright State University (off Kauffman Avenue)
  • Wright Brothers Memorial (on Kauffman Avenue)
  • Huffman MetroPark (on Lower Valley Pike)

Wright Brothers Huffman Prairie Bikeway Reviews

Great short trail with opportunity to stop in the museum and remind ourselves about the birth of flight. Bring plenty of water - most areas are not shaded!

short trail nice, Be carefull at the 2 stoplights -Dayton-Yellow Springs Rd and near National - people don't ackowledge the right of way when you have the WALK sign.

Ride can be extended by going down the hill after going under SR444 (not across the dam). There is a walk thru gate to the Wright brothers flying field. There is a nice loop and other attractions.
