This proposed 34-mile urban trail loop will serve as the hub connecting Greater Cincinnati’s regional trails to downtown, transforming the way people move in our communities.
What is CROWN?
CROWN, the Cincinnati Riding Or Walking Network, is a vision for a 100+ mile active transportation network, made up of a combination of multi-use trails and on-road bike lanes. Anchored by a 34-mile trail loop that's physically separated from car traffic, this walkable and bikeable network will connect more than 356,000 people in 54 communities to major destinations like parks, schools, and centers for employment, retail, recreation and entertainment.
When complete, CROWN will form a network with the following trails in development: Wasson Way, Ohio River Trail East, Little Miami Scenic Trail, Ohio River Trail West, Mill Creek Greenway Trail, and Canal Bikeway. Building the CROWN will transform Cincinnati into a leading destination to live, work, and play by linking our regional trails and reconnecting our neighborhoods.
