In early October, I went to Buck Creek State Park in Springfield, Ohio. My main purpose for this stop was to bike part of the Little Miami Scenic Trail. This is the 3rd longest paved trail in the US. It’s more than 78 miles, but I only rode a small portion of it. There is a connector trail from Buck Creek State Park to the trail, but in taking that you ride through downtown Springfield and I didn’t really want to do that. So I drove to Xenia and went from there.
I rode 26 miles one day and 30 miles one day. There were some great bike stops on this trail and some good scenery. I like bridges and this trail had some interesting ones.
The trail goes under this covered bridge -
And 2 old railroad bridges --
I would like to go back and spend some more time on different parts of this trail.
My next was West Virginia as I continue my journey south.
