The Little Miami Scenic Trail is 20 years old! In recognition of that fact, we will "Celebrate the Trails" with fellow "friends of the trail" groups for the region along with vendors, businesses, and everyone who loves the trail during the Xenia Community Festival. Our event will run Friday, September 16 from noon till 5PM and Saturday September 17 from 9AM till 5PM at the Xenia Station Trail Hub.

A special program emceed by trail lover and former Governor Bob Taft is planned for Saturday at 2PM. The program will include original champions on the challenges of creating the trail, and current champions such as Jeff Stephens of Consider Biking speaking about future connections and economic impacts.

We will also draw the winner of our raffle bike, which you may have admired at the Corwin Peddler. .

The Little Miami Scenic Trail is among the most beloved and extensive trail systems in the country, drawing 1.5 million visitors per year. A key reason for this notoriety is that the Little Miami Scenic Trail includes our own Little Miami State Park (LMSP) --- a 50-mile paved scenic trail that meanders through the Little Miami River valley from Cincinnati to Xenia.

The Loveland section of the Little Miami State Park opened thirty years ago, while the extension through Xenia and Yellow Springs was completed in 1991 --- hence we plan to "Celebrate the Trails". (Find us on facebook under that title for more information.)


FLMSP is dedicated to the maintenance and improvement of the multipurpose trail and facilities of the Little Miami State Park. We're grateful for your support and dedication to the future of this Ohio State Park. For more information please visit the Friends of the Little Miami State Park website at or
