Access the wide-open waterways and scenic landscapes of western Hamilton County and Find Your Wild like never before.
Great Parks is leading the development of a master plan for the West Region Blueway & Trail System, a new initiative to bring people closer to nature and remove barriers to the natural world by expanding opportunities for water and land-based adventure in western Hamilton County.
Join us as we prepare to bring the West Region Blueway & Trail System from concept to reality.
Spanning Hamilton County from north to south and encompassing two rivers, four Great Parks, and many spaces in between, the West Region Blueway & Trail System will enable residents and visitors to bike, hike, walk, paddle and learn along 36 miles of river corridor. Trails on land and in the water will travel from vibrant communities to spectacular wilderness areas.
