Paved Trails

    The Great Miami Bikeway offers beautiful views of the river like this one just south of downtown Dayton.

MCD maintains trails that are part of a larger trail system. The Miami Valley Bike Trails make up the largest paved trail network in the country.

MCD built the first significant section of trail – an 8-mile loop – in downtown Dayton more than 40 years ago. Over the years, MCD has added miles to the bikeway and currently maintains about 30 miles of bike trails. More than 50 miles of bike trails are built on MCD land.

Safe, clean, and scenic

Some of the best sections of the bike trails are right along the rivers.
