Cincinnati is a beautiful city, but there are better ways to see it than from the window of a car. If you are looking to finally get out and explore the city a little now that it has gotten a little cooler, there are hundreds of miles of bike trails for you to explore and see all the secrets of the city. Better yet, you need not even own a bike as several areas have rentals available for you to use for the day.
If you aren’t the strongest cycler or have little ones that want to come with you, the International Friendship Park is generally your best bet for easy cycling. It is a well-groomed and easily navigable park that makes for some scenic easy riding as you cruise past sprawling gardens and sculpture. However, what you really come here for is the soothing views of the Ohio River.
Loveland Bike Trail
If you are looking for something lengthy and still beautiful, the Loveland Bike Trail is for you. This trail features 70 miles of scenery within the Little Miami Scenic State Park. Furthermore, if you don’t have a bike of your own, you can rent one for the day. While there are tons of scenic stretches along the Little Miami River, there are also quite a few places to take a break and get something to eat as well.
Devou Park is kind of like the best of both worlds when it comes to cycling. Yes, the park has many scenic and challenging backcountry trails, but it also has beautiful tamed trails that feature a number of places to stop for a break. It is kind of an all-purpose place to head if you can’t decide what sort of cycling adventure you want to have for the day.
