________________
On October 21, 2006, The Little Mount Trail
Commission, Inc recently visited the Little Miami
Scenic Trail on an absolutely gorgeous Saturday!

It truly was refreshing to see the beautiful trail and parks full of laughing children riding bicycles, parents pulling their children in wagons, couples
walking, walkers, bicyclists, and runners. After listening to Nick Montjoy, a native of Mount Sterling, speak about the wonderful effect the trail has had on his nearby home close to Loveland, those visiting from Mount Sterling took every opportunity to walk, ride, eat, and shop along the trail.

The Little Mount Trail Commission plans to schedule another trail familiarization visit in the spring for the community.
