Make the most of summer weather and visit these Beavercreek bike trails.

Is biking an essential recreational activity for you and your family? If that's the case, look no further than Beavercreek homes for sale for your next home, complete with abundant biking trails nearby.

We don't blame you for counting biking among the essentials you'd like to enjoy in close proximity to your new home. Cycling is fun, it's good exercise, and it's a great way to get around and see your neighborhood, without increasing your carbon footprint. Cycling has also never been more popular, so bikes abound in the marketplace — including the popular e-bike, designed for those who like a little boost when going uphill.

To help you out, our REALTORS® put their heads together and compiled a list of some of the best cycling venues in our area. So hop on your bike and let's ride!

  1. Creekside Reserve. 761 Factory Rd., Beavercreek
    Enjoy the diverse landscape of Creekside Reserve as you ride along Little Beaver Creek: creekside, flood plain forest, and meadows. The park is accessible only by the bike trail. Visitors should park at EJ Nutter Park, 865 Factory Road in Beavercreek, or down the bike trail at Beavercreek Community Park, next to Southern Ohio Brewing, 818 Factory Road.

  2. Fifth Third Gateway Park and Ride Facility. Located where I-675, U.S. 35, and Dayton-Xenia Road (Old 35) meet
    In case you're intrigued by the name, it refers to a generous donation from Fifth Third Bank that helped purchase the park. Fifth Third Gateway Park has a gazebo, bike rack, vending machines, water fountain, and paved parking for 30, plus unpaved parking for 30 more. There's also a portable restroom facility. The trail, a former railroad track, is mostly flat. There's a bit of shade along the trail.

  3. Beavercreek Community Park. 760 Factory Road, Beavercreek
    Beavercreek Community Park has multiple uses, including a pond where catch and release fishing is allowed, plus a walking trail, but there is also a Community Park bike trail that is a connector between Hunter's Ridge Park and Rotary Park. Once this corridor was completed, the trail was connected to Dayton-Xenia Road.

  4. Stafford Park. 3636 Crab Orchard Ave., Beavercreek
    Stafford Park is 11.8 acres, with a creek and footbridge on the bike path. There's also playground equipment in the park. School kids use the bike path to get to school. While there is no bathroom or water fountain, there is sometimes a food truck for refreshments.

  5. Virgallito Park, 2564 Lantz Rd., Dayton
    This park was named after the first Beavercreek Jaycee chapter president. At 9.2 acres, it has a softball diamond, picnic shelter, unique playground, and some wooded trails for hiking. There is also a bike trail, accessed from Cold Springs Road. Virgallito Park is less than a 10-minutes drive from Beavercreek.

  6. Huffman MetroPark. 4095 Lower Valley Pike, Dayton
    The name of Huffman MetroPark suggests a historical connection to bicycles, recalling the Huffman family of Huffy Bike Corporation fame. Horace Huffman Jr. was a community organizer who advocated development of river bikeways in the 70s. The current lakefront park has many uses, including paddling the waterway, wildlife watching, hiking through woodlands, boating and sailing, fishing, and of course biking. Cyclists enjoy touring via the Wright Brothers Huffman Prairie Bikeway and the Mad River Bikeway.
Are you mad for cycling or just interested in starting it up, as a way to get exercise and commune with the countryside? There are bicycle shops in Beavercreek and nearby Dayton to get you on your way.
