The Creekside Trail (Bicycle Route 2) is part of a network of more than 340 miles of trails that travel throughout Ohio’s scenic Miami Valley. The route follows a nature-filled corridor offering many opportunities for side exploration and, because the trail parallels two streams much of the way, there are also spots to cool off on hot summer days. The Creekside Trail is one of several trails that radiate from Xenia Station, allowing for connections to the Xenia-Jamestown Connector, the Little Miami Scenic Trail and the Prairie Grass Trail, the latter two of which are also part of the cross-state Ohio to Erie Trail.
Five Rivers MetroParks manages the Creekside Trail from Eastwood MetroPark to the Greene County line. This east-west trail connects with the Mad River Trail which leads to the Great Miami River Trail, downtown Dayton and the Bike Hub at RiverScape MetroPark. The Creekside Trail provides a critical crossing over I-675 and connects the two hubs of the trail network in the Miami Valley: Xenia and Dayton.
