the local buzz
is one of Greater Cincinnati’s gems and it’s getting national attention.
The 78-mile section of the Miami Valley trail network was recently highlighted by travel outlet, Afar. Afar’s list of
'5 Urban Trails That Connect U.S. Cities to the Great Outdoors' also highlighted trails in San Francisco and Brooklyn.
'You don’t have to get out of town to have rewarding encounters with nature. These green spaces offer ample opportunities to hike, walk, bike, glide or ride in the heart of the city,' Afar said.
The Little Miami Scenic Trail passes through five Ohio counties – Hamilton, Clermont, Warren, Greene, Clark – and connects to multiple other trails.
The region has more than 350 miles of paved, multi-use recreational trails, officials with the trail system said.
'Stretching across county lines, these trails connect schools, parks, historic landmarks and area attractions. Travel through meadows, scenic countryside, forested areas and city centers while on the path,' officials said.
