Wasson Way


JOIN US in transforming one of the country’s great undiscovered greenways — a 7.6 mile mixed use trail that goes from Victory Parkway near Xavier University through twelve local neighborhoods and connects to the Little Miami Bike trail. With connecting trails we will someday be part of The CROWN network of over 30 miles of off-road pathways creating walkable neighborhoods. Help us build a vibrant active community in Cincinnati.

Wasson Way Joins CROWN

Wasson Way has joined forces with Green Umbrella, Tri State Trails and Ohio River Way in a collaborative agreement: CROWN Cincinnati.

CROWN is a bold vision for a 34 mile urban trail loop connecting more than 356,000 people in 54 communities to major destinations like parks, schools, and centers for employment, retail, recreation, and entertainment. When complete, CROWN will serve as a hub for over 600 miles of regional trails and bikeways like the Wasson Way, Little Miami Scenic Trail, Ohio River Trail, Mill Creek Greenway, Riverfront Commons, and more.

11/2019 – Phase 2 is open!

We cut the ribbon for Phase 2. The Withrow High School marching band opened the celebration. It is so exciting to connect Evanston, Norwood, and Xavier to Hyde Park and Oakley for the first time since Interstate 71 was built 50 years ago.

Ribbon Cutting on November 9th, 2019

We officially open the second phase of the Wasson Way Trail on November 9th at 10am in Norwood. The address is 2200 Dana Avenue and parking will be located near Lexington, Elsmere, and Floral Avenue. Please join us for live music, free beverages, snacks, and prizes and bring the entire family. We look forward to seeing you there and celebrating 1.2 miles of completed trail!

Phase 2 is Moving Forward!

Phase 2 construction starts in April. This section will start at the end of Phase 1 near Tamarack Avenue, go west across I-71, reaching Montgomery Road near Xavier University. It will transform Wasson Way into a true transportation route, bridging the divide between Xavier, Norwood, Evanston, Hyde Park and Oakley created over 50 years ago by I-71.

Phase 1 of the Trail is Open

We are excited to announce that the first phase of Wasson Way is now open to the public. Our ribbon cutting event was a huge success and brought out so much community support. We want to thank everyone who attended and continues to support our vision. View the link below to get an overview of the phase 1 map and design.
