The Little Miami Scenic Trail

US 50
Cincinnati, OH 45201

The Little Miami Scenic Trail extends for over 70 miles but averages only 66 feet in width. It is built mostly on an abandoned railroad right-of-way that was converted for public use. The purpose of this guide is to provide a brief glimpse of some of the history of the people, places, and events that are associated with a large portion of this trail. For the most part, larger towns, such as Xenia, Morrow, Loveland, and Milford, are given only brief histories since there is ample and easily accessible information on these towns available in libraries and on the internet. Instead, this guide will provide a little more detail on smaller, and occasionally abandoned, villages. Only the segment from Xenia to Newtown is discussed here since, at the time of this writing, the mile marks along the trail begin at the Depot in Xenia and continue to Newtown.
