Hearthstone Inn & Suites is located directly on Trail #1 (The Ohio-To-Erie Trail/Prarie Grass Trail). We are 7.78 miles from the Little Miami Bike Trail (Trail #3) with the connection hub centralized at Xenia Station. From the Xenia Station hub, you can bike on some of the most amazing off-road cycling trail routes in the United States!
The trails wind through small towns rich with history and charm including Cedarville, Yellow Springs, and Loveland. We have hosted "century-riders," small groups of bike trail enthusiasts, out-of-state bike trail visitors, and even leisure riders exploring our trail on a two-person tandem (we have bike rentals available, including a "bicycle-built-for-two"). If traveling from Xenia by bicycle, we are 7.8 miles northeast on Trail #4—the Ohio-to-Erie trail. Come into Cedarville at the Main Street bike trail crossing, hop off your bike, and just walk in!
Ohio's Miami Valley area offers both beautiful open-road / back-road cycling, as well as a wonderful system of recreational trails to its residents and visitors. Over 250 miles of delightful, invigorating trails stretch across five counties, crossing a variety of terrains. The Little Miami/Ohio-to-Erie Bike Trail system is primarily a fully-paved, former railroad bed. It connects at the centrally-located Xenia Bike Station hub to the Ohio-to-Erie Trail and a number of other interconnected routes.
The quaint Xenia Station is the meeting point for five major bike trails. Designed as a 19th-century train station, Xenia Station contains a replica of the original Xenia telegraph office.
