Well maintained and convenient to get to. It's fun to watch the planes arriving and departing from Lunken Airfield. Only complaint I have is it is mostly in the sun with not many shady areas. You can extend this trail from the loop but I have not been on that part of the trail. We like walking and then having... More

Great place to ride a bike or walk. But be sure you wear comfortable shoes. Met many friendly folk along the path.

Wife and I will come here with the grandkids, or sometimes just by ourselves. Great 5 mile ride around Lunken Airport. Several times we've been here when they have the vintage warplanes on display, and they will sometimes fly in and out. That's exciting to see. Very moderate terrain, some slight hills around the Wilmer Ave side. If you go... More

Excellent parking for a 5 mile loop that can extend with spurs up to 8 miles . Scenery is fantastic and diverse including airplanes , wetlands, rivers and wildlife . Early mornings are absolutely beautiful.

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.

The 5 mile path (pets allowed) is nice, esp. since it loops, and last year they made a 1.1 mile connector that goes to Otto Armleder park, which has a 2 mile loop, making it extra long. It also connects to Ohio River Trail path. The 5 mile loop is marked every half mile, is mostly flat, and some sections... More

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.
