COLUMBUS, OH - The Little Miami Scenic Trail extension through the southeast Cincinnati suburb of Terrace Park is now open seven days a week, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).
Since June, a 2.65-mile section of trail between the Milford trailhead and Avoca Park, south of Terrace Park, has been open on weekends only while contractors added finishing touches to the popular recreational facility.
“We’re pleased that this project is concluding a month ahead of schedule,” said Scott Zody, ODNR deputy director. “And we appreciate the patience displayed by local trail users in recent months while we put the finishing touches on signage, fencing and other amenities along this section.”
The main corridor of the Little Miami Scenic Trail extends more than 70 miles from Springfield in Clark County to the Little Miami Golf Center in Hamilton County, with several spur trails connecting to communities throughout southwest Ohio and elsewhere.
Ultimately, the goal is to extend the trail to the Cincinnati Riverfront, allowing bicyclists, hikers, rollerbladers and other users to travel unhindered nearly 90 miles through five counties, encompassing some of southwest Ohio’s most scenic countryside.
More than 350,000 people traveled on the Little Miami Scenic Trail last year.
