Cycling & Trails
Greene County is the central hub of the Miami Valley Trails. You can start from Xenia Station and ride to the Greene County line in five directions. You can keep going and arrive in Dayton, Cincinnati, Piqua, Urbana, or London, Ohio. Not feeling quite that ambitious? Just take a leisurely pedal through the woodlands, prairies, and wetlands of Greene County, then enjoy a community festival, some shopping, or just a cup of coffee in Yellow Springs, Cedarville, Jamestown, Spring Valley or Beavercreek.
You may think you hear the faint echo of a steam locomotive whistle on the old B&O or Pennsylvania Railroad, but the crossties have been replaced with asphalt, and these multi-use trails now provide one of the most popular public recreational opportunities of the modern era. We now travel these historic thoroughfares on our own power – we ride bicycles, walk, run or roller-blade through the countryside and small towns of Greene County, with only an occasional street crossing to remind us of motorized traffic.
