Lebanon to Little Miami Bike Path

Little Miami River Bike Bridge

This photo is of the bridge over the Little Miami River looking north back toward Lebanon.

The 8.2 Mile bike path starts in downtown Lebanon near the train station where the train parks. When I was there today, there were people waiting to ride the train.

The bike path runs East for about half of a mile and then turns South for 2 miles on Deerfield Road.

 

 

The path continues through the City of Lebanon to north of the Countryside YMCA.

 

 

 

The trail passes over Turtle Creek in the park on this new bridge.
Turtle Creek Valley was named for the famous Indian chief “Little Turtle”.

 

The trail continues South to Kings View Road/Fujitec drive along a light industrial park.  Now the bike path tuns south-west down a big hill, the along side of Kingsview Drive. (Tough climb coming back). 
The path turns sharp to a south eastern direction onto the old “Middletown Junction” rail road track bed under I-75.
 
It crosses the Little Miami Scenic River to connect with the Little Miami Scenic Trail.

Bike Path to Morrow, Ohio

 

I bought a  Trek 2.1 Road Bike for fun. With high gas prices, everyone can afford to ride a bike.

After taking my first trip, I was hooked.

These bike paths are all mine!! I’ll start with the Little Miami Scenic Trail  which extends for 76 miles and is a build on an old railroad right-of-way. Some say there are ghosts that still ride these rails.

First stop Morrow.

The 10 mile round trip journey from Morgans Livery in Ft. Ancient to Morrow, Ohio was really easy, even for an old guy like me. In fact, actually I went 12 miles total, but the round trip to Morrow, where you can get an ice cream, is 10 miles round trip. I noticed one ice cream shop was out of business, but the other one was opening up for business.

Here are some photos of the bike path and Morrow, Ohio.

I will be riding and reviewing the entire 76 Miles of my Miami Valley Bike Path along with the Lebanon bike path to the Little Miami Scenic Trail.
