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.

When FLMSP volunteers Bruce Cortright, Paul Morgan, and Don Hahn came upon fellow volunteer Mel Hensey near Fosters that day in 2012, he had dried blood on his forehead from an accident earlier in his work session. 

Working Together

Joint workdays with Friends volunteers and state park employees not only make important trail improvements, but also symbolize a cooperative spirit that benefits all trail users.

New Trees on the Trail!

“The best time to plant trees is 25 years ago,” one of our reforestation volunteers reminded us. “The second best time is today!” Their recent efforts, however, were not second-best, but whole-hearted and productive.
