About the Simon Kenton Trail
The Simon Kenton Trail extends the Little Miami Trail corridor another 18 miles north from downtown Springfield to Urbana, Ohio. It begins amidst all that Springfield has to offer, from the arts to the ECO Sports Corridor and then swiftly proceeds to the rolling farm countryside of Ohio on your way to Urbana.

Named for the historic frontiersman, the Simon Kenton Trail presents its own gauntlet you can run, from city to country and back, stretching 18 miles from Springfield to Urbana. Downtown Springfield boasts diverse dining, the full spectrum of the arts, the Clark County Heritage Center and Frank Lloyd Wright’s “The Westcott House.” You’ll also find the ECO Sports Corridor along the Buck Creek Trail featuring river kayaking, bouldering and even windsurfing at C.J. Brown Reservoir.

Consider a stop at Cedar Bog, just past the Champaign County line. Operated by the Ohio History Connection, Cedar Bog Nature Preserve is the largest and best example of a boreal and prairie fen complex in Ohio. It has many rare plants and animals, as well as excellent orchid, prairie, and woodland wildflower displays.

Continuing on, you will arrive in Urbana, Ohio, final resting place of Simon Kenton. The trail continues as far as Grimes Field, Urbana.
