Since its founding in 2008, Friends of the Little Miami State Park (FLMSP) has made trail safety its most important focus. Indeed, the group was formed in response to a safety issue; following several accidents, Friends raised funds and paved the algae covered, slippery wooden bridges. And now, the group is coalescing around a major safety issue: road crossings.
The arrival of cool, crisp, windy, fall weather is no reason to stop using the Little Miami River Scenic Trail, but it is reason to beware of hazards that can arise this time of year.
After being closed for about a week in the Ft. Ancient area, the trail is now open as Ohio DNR wraps up the construction projects there.
