This is a paved, near perfectly level, several mile loop that surrounds Cincinnati's municipal Lunken Airport. There is plenty of parking (in particular next to a farmer's market that is one of Cincninnati's best) and easy access onto the loop. Rare that you won't see plenty of other people though not too many to make it crowded. Great for singles,... More

A 5-mile loop (includes the Ohio River Trail) that's great for an afternoon's walk, bike ride or jog. Along the western portions of the trail you parallel the Ohio River. A visit to this old municipal airport's art deco main building is a must. See the murals and read the dedication plaques.

Old terminal is great piece of art decco architecture and has good restaurant inside. When airshows come to town its the place to be. Otherwise the 4 mile loop around the airfield is a very handy exercize track.

My main ding on this loop is that it's too narrow for all the activity, joggers, walkers with and without pets and bicyclists. Several sections are washboard rough.

We have a whole lotta fun -- it's great for families or couples. There are so many pieces of playground equipment. I'm not sure if pets are allowed, but I'd sure like to walk my dog there.
