The Creekside Trail is part of the Miami Valley Trail network. The trail runs from Xenia Station in Xenia to the Eastwood Metro Park in Dayton. In Greene County, it is called the Creekside Trail, in Montgomery County it is called the Creekside Recreational Trail. This segment is 17.2 miles long and runs East to West along Route 35 for most of its length. The trail is maintained by Greene County and Montgomery County. The entire length of the trail is paved with very little grade. The trail follows railroad right-of-ways that were converted to trails.
In Beavercreek, there are several places to park along the trail. You can view the available map to find the official parking areas for Creekside Trail. You can also use this map to find walking or bike access to the trail. The “P” symbols designate parking, the bike symbol designates walking or bike access. The trail can also be access at all crossroads.
