Iron Horse Trail (OH) Description

The 7-mile Iron Horse Trail (open in two disconnected segments) utilizes approximately 2 miles of former Penn Central right-of-way, providing users a pleasant route through neighborhoods, as well as a link to Centerville’s Iron Horse Park and Kettering’s State Farm Park. In the north, the paved pathway connects to Dayton’s Creekside Trail, which itself leads to other trails feeding into the city’s vibrant downtown.

The many trails in the area are components of the 330-mile Miami Valley trail system, one of the nation's largest networks of paved, off-street trails.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking and trail access is available at Iron Horse Park in Centerville. Visitors may take Interstate 675 to State Route 48 north, turn right onto Whipp Road, and then turn right onto Millshire Drive. The entrance to the park is on the right.
