Medlar Conservation Area

Medlar Conservation Area is 416 acres of open space with woods, wetlands, a forest, fields and  a 2.5 mile paved, winding path connecting the Great Miami River bikeway trail to the Great-Little Trail. While the main entrance is on Medlar Road, a popular access point is from the Great Miami River bikeway, just north of Crain's Park close to Miamisburg. Cyclists can then head east on the Great-Little Trail for an uphill cycling challenge through diverse habitats and with spectacular views. As you pedal up the hill, be sure to stop and enjoy the view from Eagle Hill. Continue on to Austin Landing or coast back down the path, returning to the Great Miami river bikeway trail.

The Great-Little Trail begins at the Great Miami River and will eventually provide an east-west connection at the Little Miami Scenic Trail along the Little Miami River, at Corwin or Spring Valley. Currently the path runs from Crain's Run Park in Miami Township to Austin Landing. As of now, cyclists can continue down Austin Boulevard to Social Row in Washington Township, where the path ends.
