Creekside Trail

About this Location

The Creekside Trail begins at Eastwood MetroPark, passing through both residential and commercial areas before meeting its intersection with the Iron Horse Bikeway near US-35. Here, Creekside heads due east along the highway and eventually passes over the Montgomery County line into Greene County.

Once in Greene County, the trail navigates through two wetland areas, providing an extraordinary view of rare plants and animals. One of these is the Creekside Reserve, which begins at Factory Road and runs along the south side of the bikeway near North Fairfield Road. Crossing the 140-foot bridge over Shawnee Creek at the James Ranch, you can commute to the Fairgrounds Recreation Center Park, Mullins Pool, the Greene County Fairgrounds, and the Little Miami Scenic Trail.

Restrooms are available at some trailheads and parks.
