1854 Trail Guide

1854 Trail Guide Cover 100t

by Janet Slater

Yes, I know there was no bike trail here 160 years ago. But there was the Little Miami Railroad, and our trail is built directly on its foundation. So follow along as you pedal in this 1854 guide written for travelers on the iron horse. New "stops" from the guide will be added periodically.

Imagine you’re cycling north on the trail from Cincinnati. Gradually you realize you are no longer pedaling, and you begin to hear a chugging engine instead of birds. A few other passengers in strange dress appear around you. You’re traveling on the Little Miami Railroad, and the year is 1854. Choose your destination below.
