Germantown MetroPark, Germantown

Directions: From north or south, take I-75 to Rt 725 (Dayton Mall exit).  Follow Rt 725 through Miamisburg. It will merge with State Route 4 west of Miamisburg.  Follow to Germantown where Rt 725 splits off. Turn right and continue on Rt 725 through Germantown to Boomershine Road.  Turn right onto Boomershine Road, go to the Nature Center entrance, and follow the race signs.

Trail Information: Best hills in the Dayton/Cincinnati area. For our group, the Dirt Dawgs, this is the hardest 7-mile loop we do! Pick up the trail at the Nature Center, and follow the orange markers. At least 5 good steep, long climbs with a sprinkling in of short, steep climbs for good measure.
