Loveland Bike Trail (pictured)
Our beloved 70 miles of connected trails within the “Loveland Bike Trail” and the Little Miami State Park was previously the Pennsylvania Railroad! Said railroad cut through the forests and towns all over Cincinnati. When the trains stopped operating, it became the Multi Purpose Paved Trail we have today that is perfect for bike rides or a stroll. Around Downtown Loveland there are stops along the trail including a small park, nature center, shaved ice cream shack, sweets shops, restaurants, and more.
There’s so much greenery along this trail that you’ll forget you’re still in Cincinnati. Bring the family and your four-legged friend on the path that runs parallel to a creek — setting a lovely soundtrack to a hike alternating between bubbling rapids and peaceful trickling of water.
Who doesn’t love a park with waterfalls? Beautiful park and trails that are well maintained and clearly marked. You can rent pontoons, kayaks, or canoes, have a picnic, or take the kiddos to play in the waterfalls by the Buckeye Trail. At a little over 700 acres, Sharon Woods has the space to offer something for everyone.
Cincinnati has plenty of parks, one of the legacies of its rich history, but this one is extra special. The combination of big, open lawns and wooded areas, observation points and gardens, playgrounds and the signature Italianate pavilion make it a gem. It is great for running, with lots of hills and variety. There are a few hiking trails and tons of wonderful scenery and flowers. You just can’t go through fall without seeing Ault Park’s changing leaves.
With over 1,400 acres of of land featuring trails, activities, shelters, and more, Mt. Airy is the perfect quick escape for an afternoon. You’ll find well-marked trails, the big beautiful park in the middle of an urban area, and a huge treehouse that everyone can enjoy. You’ll definitely want to pack a picnic to sit back and enjoy the changing colors of the seasons.
