Detours and Closures

This page assembles all current trail closures and detours in the Miami Valley Trail system, due to scheduled trail repair or roadway construction. This information does not include intermittent issues that impact trails such as downed trees or high water. Where possible, beginning and end dates for the detours and closures are provided.

What's the difference?


A detour is an alternative route selected to safely get around a scheduled trail closure. Detours are commonly routed along surface streets, and involve sharing the road with motor traffic. A trail closure is a section of trail that is closed for use by the trail managing agency due to trail maintenance or roadway construction.

High water, particularly along the Great Miami River Trail, can occasionally inundate the trail making it impassible. We can offer these outside links to help you plan and navigate these potential issues:

  • The Great Miami Riverway has created a trail conditions map to display when recent rains and flood gauge readings indicate a likelihood that the trail is flooded. You can access this map here.
  • The Miami Conservancy District has gathered all Great Miami River flood gauge data into one convenient page. You may select the section of the river of interest to you to look at recent and forecasted river levels. Access this data here.
  • The City of Troy has designated (and signed) a High Water Bypass route through their beautiful historic downtown for use when high water inundates sections of the Great Miami River Trail which are inside the flood levees. You can download and print this map from here.
