About Us


The Friends of the Little Miami State Park (FLMSP) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization working to maintain and improve the 50-mile Little Miami State Park paved trail. We work closely with the Ohio Dept. of Natural Resources to preserve the park’s natural river setting while creating a safe, enjoyable experience for all trail users.

FLMSP conforms to the highest industry standards applied to non-profits, making it well qualified for grant consideration and for donor confidence. The Friends volunteer their labor and skills because we love the trail and want others to enjoy it as much as we do!

Consider joining us on—or off—the trail.  We're always looking for volunteers.  You can pick up brush and litter on an Adopt-a-Trail team, share a special skill or resource in Special Ops, or help promote our work in the community and through media. Everyone is welcome; every effort helps.  The amount of time you devote is always your decision, and your work will always be sincerely appreciated. 

Two Safety Projects

Double yellow lines extending 100 feet on each side of road intersections signal "no passing" as well as warn trail users to use caution as they approach the intersection. Lines were painted Nov. 3 at 33 intersections in Greene and Warren Counties, the first repainting in more than 10 years, and at the Lebanon spur trail for the first time.

Electrifying News

Most bicycle laws in Ohio date from the 1990s, well before the era of low-speed electric bikes. Making this technology legally acceptable is increasingly important as more and more cyclists, especially those who due to age or limited physical capacity, use the eBike alternative to continue to enjoy riding.
