Five Rivers MetroParks
The City of Huber Heights is fortunate to have two MetroParks within its boundaries. Just north of I-70 is Carriage Hill MetroPark Farm and on the northwestern boundary of Huber Heights is Taylorsville MetroPark and the Great Miami River Recreation Trail. All of these facilities are yours to explore.
Carriage Hill MetroPark Farm is dedicated to the protection and stewardship of the Miami Valley’s natural and cultural heritage with nearly 900 acres dedicated to natural and historic settings. Taylorsville MetroPark combines recreational and educational opportunities. Taylorsville’s 1,300 acres brings people closer to nature and all it offers…enhancing our quality of life. Enjoy over 13 miles of trails — hike through a pristine old growth hardwood forest, wander through prairies or enjoy panoramic views of the Great Miami River.
The Great Miami River Recreation Trail is your road to adventure. You can bike, hike, run or in-line skate on this 5.5-mile scenic paved trail. Winding along the Miami-Erie Canal and the Great Miami River, this trail takes you to areas of the park formally inaccessible to anyone but the most avid hiker. This trail allows the user to safely pass under US 40 and Interstate 70, and cross over the Great Miami River on a pedestrian bridge.
City Council has recognized the Metroparks and recreation system as being an integral part of our community, which enhances the quality of life for the residents of Huber Heights and its visitors. For more information on Five Rivers MetroParks call 937.275.PARK (7275) or visit www.metroparks.org.
