    Welcome!

    Trails aren't too shabby. I'm a northern kentucky resident myself, but make it to most of the trails in the area at some point during the year.

    Ohio trails in the general area...
    East Fork State Park
    Ceasar Creek State Park
    Hueston Woods
    Harbin Park
    Mitchell Memorial (Brand new, haven't been here yet.)

    Kentucky...
    Idlewild
    Tower Park
    AJ Jolly Park (in the works)
    Devou Park (also in the works)

    My favorites in the area are Idlewild and East Fork. Both are very fast trails with great flow. For weekend trips, there are a lot of great options within a 1-3 hour drive. Brown County State Park in Indiana is about 2.5 hours away, and some of the best trails in Kentucky are in the Mammoth Caves area and in the Cave Run/Morehead area. 2.5 hours and 1.5 hours respectively.

    Biking in the area is certainly on the rise. New trails seem to be in the works on both sides of the river, and the local shops seem to be doing pretty good.(My favorite is moving into a new location that is twice as big as his current location.)
