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. 

Chronolog: Watch the Trail Change

The Little Miami Scenic Trail undergoes a lot of changes during the year, both manmade and natural—from construction projects that maintain the trail’s functionality to the natural seasonal changes along the river that make the trail so beautiful. With the recent installation of trail-user-driven, time lapse photo stations, now you can begin to follow these transitions over the year.
