Best Other New Bike Trail: Lower Price Hill

A new .6-mile bike and walking path on the southern edge of Lower Price Hill was unveiled in August. That swath of pavement, part of the planned Ohio River West Trail, could someday allow Price Hill residents to ride the roughly 2-and-a-half miles downtown in a matter of minutes — a key, non-automotive link between the West Side and the city’s core, says Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley. The path between Evans Street and State Avenue is also part of more ambitious plans. Supporters hope that, over the next decade, the Ohio River West Trail will eventually stretch 26 miles all the way to Shawnee Lookout Park, which sits on Ohio’s border with Indiana. And more progress to the east could take riders to the Loveland Bike Trail someday.
