If you are looking for a fun day filled with food, brews, and biking adventures, the Little Miami Scenic Trail in Ohio has you covered.
I’m sharing more about great restaurants and breweries along the bike trail to check out along the way.
Bike To or From Miamiville Trailyard
368 Center St, Miamiville, OH
We started our biking adventure on the Little Miami Bike Trail by fueling up with a meal and brew at Miamiville Trailyard.
Miamiville Trailyard is located at mile marker 47.5, halfway between Loveland and Milford.
The open-air restaurant has lots of seating inside on two levels, and outside with a laid-back, relaxed vibe.
On a beautiful day, the windows and garage doors are open allowing guests dining indoors to feel like they are still enjoying the outdoors.
Drinks at Miamiville Trailyard
Miamiville Trailyard has an assortment of craft beer, ciders, seltzers, and wine to choose from.
Menu Items at Miamiville Trailyard
Miamiville Trailyard is open for lunch and dinner and specializes in burgers, sandwiches, and salads.
My husband ordered the Trailyard burger, topped with bleu cheese, onion straws, bacon, and Trailyard sauce along with a side salad.
I opted for the bourbon sriracha burger topped with Provolone cheese, onion straws, and a bourbon sriracha sauce.
For my side, I chose an order of fries with Trailyard sauce which is similar to Chick-Fil-A sauce.
Miamiville Trailyard is a great place to start your biking adventure.
Another option is to relax by one of the outdoor fire pits at the end of the evening after your ride.
Trail Conditions and Murals on the Little Miami Scenic Trail
The bike trail is relatively flat. A large portion of the bike trail is shaded by trees which is nice on a warm, sunny day.
The Little Miami Scenic Trail is 78 miles in length and connects Newtown, Milford, Loveland, Morrow, Oregonia, Corwin, Spring Valley, Xenia, Yellow Springs, and Springfield. There are also four additional connecting bike trails from The Little Miami Scenic Trail.
You can choose your own biking adventure and bike as much or as little as you want.
Before you reach 50 West Brewing you will pass by several cool murals on both walls of the overpass.
For this particular bike trip, we rode a little over 20 miles total round trip. The stops in between made it very doable.
We did have an advantage with an extra boost of reserve power from our e-bikes whenever we wanted to use it.
Stop By Fifty West Brewing Company
7605 Wooster Pike, Cincinnati, OH
If you are biking south on The Little Miami Bike Trail you basically run into Fifty West Brewing Company 10 miles from Miamiville Trailyard.
There are bike racks available for guests visiting from the trail.
If you need to rent a bike, Fifty West Brewing has bike rentals available along with a bike shop that can do bike fittings and repairs.
Fifty West Brewing is very family-friendly and you will see guests of all ages there.
The outdoor space has plenty of picnic tables in the courtyard area and under tent coverings. Fifty West Brewery has an awesome set up in their outdoor space during the winter too.
Food and Drinks at Fifty West Brewing
The Fifty West Burger Bar has an assortment of creative burgers, chicken sandwiches, hot dogs, wings, shakes, housemade soda, and root beer floats.
Steps away from where you order, you can also grab a craft beer or other types of adult beverages.
*The sideways burger and chicken sandwich in the sandwich bag in the picture doesn’t do it justice. They are VERY good!
The menu is also kid-friendly with kids menu options that include a fruit or fry option with your protein of choice.
There is also a plant-based patty option if you want to go meatless.
If you want to tap into some friendly competition, there are several leagues offered at Fifty West Brewing:
- Sand Volleyball
208 Mill Street, Milford, Ohio
Our second beer stop that day was Little Miami Brewing Company.
Little Miami Brewing Company is a little off-the-bike trail but it’s worth the short detour.
Be on the lookout for the Milford Trailhead sign on a building. That’s your cue to get off the trail.
I’m sharing this because we thought it was right on the bike trail and went several miles past it on accident.
You can lock up your bike by the trail or there is a bike rack in front of the brewery.
You’ll find an assortment of craft beers to chose from. I ordered the “Eat a Peach” and my husband ordered the “Grateful.”
You can order brick oven pizza made fresh daily in the Taproom. There are also salads and sandwiches available for purchase.
Little Miami Brewing Company is very kid-friendly. They even have high chairs and changing tables. Pets are allowed in their covered patio or outdoor Beer Garden area.
During your visit, grab a chair and watch the canoers try to park by the riverbank by the brewery.
It’s very entertaining watching to see who can get out of their canoe without falling in the river.
Hey, it’s the little things.
231 Main St, Milford, OH
If you are willing to go a little farther from the Little Miami Brewing Company, I would highly recommend checking out The Governor. This also gives you an excuse to see how cute downtown Milford is.
They don’t take reservations so you might want to pick a time that isn’t as busy if you have a group.
We visited the restaurant on a date night specifically because we knew they would have their lobster roll special. The bread for the roll is toasted and the lobster is served cold.
The lobster roll is a little pricey and doesn’t come with sides…but it’s FRESH lobster that you get to eat in Ohio.
We ordered that and their crab cake sandwich (another seasonal special) and we LOVED it. The crab cakes are served warm for this sandwich.
We honestly came just for the lobster roll but the crab cake sandwich stole the show. If it’s a special during your visit, GET IT!!!!
Their craft cocktails are also really good.
My husband tried the “Celery Man” made with Bourbon Barrel Gin,
Cynar, cucumber, lime, celery bitters, and Ginger Beer. This is a great option if you like a Moscow mule.
I ordered “The Malone and Hyde” made with Bourbon, Carpano Antica, Big Red Simple Syrup and
Orange Bitters. I like that it wasn’t too sweet.
The Governor serves breakfast all day and sandwiches after 11 am. They are also a popular place for brunch from 10 am-3 pm.
Stop to See the Goats and Dine at Schoolhouse Restaurant
8031 Glendale Milford Rd, Camp Dennison, OH
Schoolhouse restaurant has dining inside a former classroom of a school that was in operation from the 1860s-1940s.
The Schoolhouse restaurant is known for its fried chicken and family-style dining.
There is a sign for the restaurant that you can see from the bike trail.
*Please note that the restaurant is only open Friday and Saturday evenings from 4-8 pm and 12-8 pm on Sundays.
If you visit during a time that the restaurant isn’t open, it’s still fun to stop and see the goats.
