Little Miami Scenic Trail CLOSED at Grandin Road

Starting Monday May 9, 2022, and lasting approximately 8 months, the Little Miami Scenic Trail will be closed at Grandin Road for a project to replace the King Avenue bridge, add a roundabout, and realign the Trail itself. The Warren County Engineer's office announced the specific date for this closure on April 28, 2022. Access from the trail to the Peter’s Cartridge Factory and to Cartridge Brewing will be maintained at all times from the southwest. The Trailhead parking lot, however, is closed.

A detour has been posted for this closure, however, it involves significant distance on some very busy roads with some steep terrain: US 22 and State Route 48. Only the most confident of riders should attempt this detour. You can download maps of the posted detour here:

Detour Plan

At some point during the middle of 2023, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources expects a two to three week closure to construct the trail relocation west of Grandin Road to tie into the existing trail. They expect to be able to maintain trail access through the project area for most of 2023, however due to the difference in the existing and proposed grades and use of temporary fencing and gravel, the access will only be for walking or walking with a bike through the construction area.

This location is site of the iconic Peters Cartridge Company and the tower smokestack. 

There are approximately 23 miles of the Little Miami Scenic Trail south of this closure and approximately 54 miles of the trail north of the closure.
