  • Armleder-Lunken Connector Trail

    Armleder-Lunken Connector Trail is open for weekend use only.

  • Miami Whitewater Forest Trail Alerts

    The Mt. Hope Road underpass on the Shaker Trace Inner Loop is closed as the trail is damaged and impassable. Spring rains and subsequent flood events continue to deteriorate and undermine the trail. A prolonged closure is expected as Great Parks of Hamilton County works with the Office of the County Engineer to determine appropriate repairs.

  • Woodland Mound Disc Golf

    Holes 10-18 for the Woodland Mound Disc Golf Course will be closed August 1st through the 31st due to site construction. Holes 1-9 will be closed August 15th through September 30th as well. We hope to complete this work in a timely manner to get the course fully open as quickly as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience.
