RECREATION

Bicycling

Hit the Trails

Bicycling is one of the most popular and fastest growing outdoor activities in America, and Great Parks has more than 78 miles for you to explore. Create your own adventure or check our calendar for bicycling programs and mountain biking events.

There are shared-use, paved trails at most Great Parks where you can take a spin and discover something new. Hit the trails on your own bike or rent one at Miami Whitewater Forest, Sharon Woods and Winton Woods boathouses.


Little Miami Scenic Trail

The third longest paved trail in the U.S., the Little Miami Scenic Trail runs along the banks of the Little Miami River and connects five Ohio counties. Guests can access this trail from the Little Miami Golf Center parking lot, Avoca Trailhead or Bass Island.
