The Little Miami State covers a total area of 707 acres. The park is unusual in that it is a trail corridor that is linear and passes through five different south-western counties in the state of Ohio. This state park is about 50 miles long, and about 66 feet wide on average. Most of the park is right along the Little Miami River in an area that has been dedicated as a car-free corridor. The park can be found along the Little Miami River between Green County and Clermont County.
Little Miami State Park includes 50 miles of a paved bicycle trail right by the river as well as a series of canoe access points. These areas have ‘staging areas’ that include parking lots restrooms, and shelters. The ‘staging areas’ are also handicapped accessible areas.
The general terrain in the park and in the surrounding areas consists of forests, towering cliffs, steep gorges, and rolling farm country. Huge Sycamore Trees can be found near the river's edge and form part of the beautiful vegetation that is a bird-watchers paradise due to the diverse flocks of birds that frequent the area. Other interesting activities that make this park very popular include fishing, hiking, canoeing, bicycling, rafting, horseback riding, inline skating, and cross-country skiing.
Another activity that is quite popular at the park is having fun, exercise, or relaxation with pets or dogs. If you choose to bring your dog to this park, just make sure that you observe standard Ohio State park rules to avoid any inconvenience to yourself or to others. Some of the rules with regards to dogs include the following. First, your dog must always be on a leash no longer than six feet long. Also, you must prevent your pooch from going into park buildings and especially if there is no clear sign that the area is a designated pet-friendly area.
