The 2015 Cincinnati Connects Plan outlines the vision to link the existing Little Miami Scenic Trail, Ohio River Trail East, Mill Creek Greenway Trail, Lunken Airport Trail, and Otto Armleder Trail to the proposed Wasson Way, Oasis Trail, Ohio River Trail West, and Little Duck Creek Trail. Cincinnati Connects was funded by Interact for Health and managed/led by Groundwork Cincinnati Mill Creek.
In addition to the trail groups listed above, many other partners were
engaged in the development of the Cincinnati Connects plan: Cincinnati
Department of Transportation and Engineering, Cincinnati Parks, Great
Parks of Hamilton County, OKI Regional Council of Governments, Queen
City Bike, Red Bike, and others.
