Map Publication Date: November 2012

This section starts along Grant Lake, and follows narrow country roads past numerous farms and small towns for about ten miles. After passing through the city of Williamsburg, the trail winds 25 miles through East Fork State Park, the only portion entirely off-road. The western part of the section finds increasing urban evidence as the trail nears Cincinnati. It passes through the city of Batavia, and along some more heavily traveled roads, before ending in Milford, where it joins the Loveland Section and the Little Miami Rail Trail.

Trail Alerts

  • (3/22/16)Williamsburg Section Supervisor Chris McIntyre reports that he has closed the trail between Points 8 and 20. All but about 7 miles of the 24 miles of the existing off-road trail between these points has been bulldozed into a muddy mess. Because the resulting trail goes straight up and down at creeks and gully crossings, Chris believes that conditions can only deteriorate further in the near term. The following detour goes through East Fork State Park on the north side of the William H Harsha Lake and uses the Williamsburg Batavia Bike Trail (WBBT). This detour reduces the length of the Williamsburg Section by 18.2 mi. See details below.
