Description

Located in Miami Township, Medlar Conservation Area protects 416 acres containing mature woods, fields, shrub-scrub habitat, a pond and a number of created wetlands, preserving some of the last quality open space in this part of Montgomery County.

Guests enjoy picturesque views while cycling, bird watching, or hiking. The vision to protect land in the region south of Miamisburg began in 1972 with a sizable land purchase. The project gained momentum in 1995 with a conservation easement donation from Mrs. Gwen Rice for 105 acres of farm land. The remaining acreage was acquired between 2008-2012 using the Clean Ohio Green Space funds and a paved trail showcases the awesome variety of habitats and terrains opened to park goers in 2013.

Additional Information

Accessibility Description

There is ADA accessible parking and a 2.25 mile paved section of the Great-Little Trail.

Great-Little Trail

The 2.25 scenic paved trail through Medlar is part of the Great-Little Trail, an east-west route that starts at the Great Miami River Trail just north of Crains Run Park (west), traverses the Medlar Conservation Area and then runs along Austin Pike/Blvd and then Social Row Road with a goal of reaching the Little Miami Scenic Trail (east). The trail makes a significant step toward a southern connection between the region’s two main arterial trails.
