About The Crown
The Crown is a vision for Cincinnati’s first-ever urban trail loop – a 34-mile, multi-use paved trail that connects our city’s iconic landmarks and hidden gems. Once complete, the Crown will connect more than 356,000 people in 54 communities to major destinations like parks, schools, and centers for employment, retail, recreation and entertainment. This walkable, bikable loop will also be fully separated from roadway traffic, providing a safe and accessible option for all Cincinnatians to gather and be active outdoors.
When complete, the 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. The Crown will transform Cincinnati into a leading destination to live, work, and play by linking our regional trails and reconnecting our neighborhoods.
The Crown is supported by a public-private partnership leveraging state and federal grant funding to connect our regional trails. Individual, corporate, and foundation donations are essential to completing the Crown. Our capital campaign cabinet is led by a talented group of community leaders, all passionate about making the Crown vision a reality. If you’re interested in becoming involved, please contact us.
