Iron Horse Trail
Making its way along a preserved rail corridor, the Iron Horse Trail is a natural oasis in suburban southern Montgomery County. The 7-mile Iron Horse Trail (open in two disconnected segments) utilizes approximately 2 miles of former Penn Central right-of-way, providing users a pleasant route through neighborhoods, as well as a link to Centerville’s Iron Horse Park and Kettering’s State Farm Park. In the north, the paved pathway connects to Dayton’s Creekside Trail, which itself leads to other trails feeding into the city’s vibrant downtown.
The Iron Horse Trail connects with the Creekside Trail just south of Eastwood MetroPark near US 35. This 7-mile trail takes users south along the eastern border of Woodman Fen Conservation Area before ending at State Farm Park in Kettering.
