The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) will replace the pedestrian bridge on the Little Miami Scenic Trail over O’Bannon Creek. This is the bridge just northeast of the restroom building in Nisbet Park.
This is an ODNR-managed project. The O’Bannon Creek Bridge is one of the original bridges that remains from when the Little Miami State Park Scenic Trail was a railroad. Its replacement will be steel with a concrete deck.
The city will post updates here, as received, to help keep residents and Bike Trail users informed.
Demo & Bridge Replacement

There is no detour.
The trail will remain open in the southbound direction toward Camp Dennison and Milford. Historic Loveland still is a great spot to start your trail adventure — whether walking, biking or paddling! Take advantage of Loveland's free public parking lots, restrooms, picnic tables and more. Travel south on the trail, and then return to Loveland for coffee, ice cream, dining, shopping, and entertainment.
