  • Little Miami Scenic Trail
    The Little Miami Scenic Trail is part of an 80-mile trail network that extends from eastern Cincinnati to Buck Creek State Park near Springfield. | The dream of a hike/bike trail between Xenia and Yellow Springs emerged as rail service faded into memory. Paving the way for the dream to become a reality, the City of Xenia, Village of Yellow Springs and Ohio Department of Natural Resources acquired the right-of-way between 1973 and 1983. | In 1986, the project received a 100% funding grant from the Federal Highway administration as an alternate means of transportation. These funds are administered by Ohio Department of Transportation. | Plans, public hearings, and engineering, were completed, and construction began in July 1990. With the opening of the trail in October 1991, the spirit of the Little Miami Railroad is resurrected.
