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.

Adapting a Gift from the Past

Last winter, Friends volunteers doing some routine culvert-cleaning on the trail discovered a hidden gem near South Lebanon: a sturdy drainage culvert built in our trail’s railroad past.
