Little Miami Bike Trail - Xenia to Corwin

Time for another bike ride with Mtn Laurel. We will be riding at a moderate pace of about 12-15 mph and will cover about 28 miles round trip. We will be riding from Xenia to Corwin. The trail is fairly straight, level, and well shaded. Bring a snack to eat when we arrive in Corwin because the Corwin Peddlar is closed for business until a new owner buys it.

Trail Description

The Little Miami Scenic Trail begins in Milford, in Hamilton County, and travels approximately 75 miles to the northeast to Springfield, in Clark County. Portions of the Little Miami Scenic Trail parallel the river for which it's named, winding serenely through the beautiful countryside of Southwestern Ohio. This trail is also part of the statewide Buckeye Trail, the North Country National Scenic Trail and the statewide Ohio-to-Erie Trail.

A tale of two trails, the Little Miami Scenic Trail has two distinct personalities. South of Spring Valley, Ohio the trail hugs the banks of the Little Miami River providing a well-shaded, meandering ride with occasional respites in small towns, like Corwin and Oregonia. You’ll pass canoe liveries; quaint eateries; Ft. Ancient and then pass the very modern attractions of Kings Island in Mason. Loveland and Terrace Park will welcome you even further south.

North of Spring Valley, the route follows historic rail corridors and links larger cities such as Xenia and Springfield, through Yellow Springs. The City of Xenia boasts Xenia Station, a restored railroad station that sits at the hub of four trails that meet in Xenia. Nine miles north reaches Yellow Springs, a vibrant village next to John Bryan State Park and the Glen Helen nature preserve. Along the reach to downtown Springfield, you’ll pass rolling farm land and Young’s Jersey Dairy.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
