The Little Miami Scenic Trail will be closed between Senior Road in Morrow and Route 350 in Oregonia from September 12 through the end of November, 2016. No detour is available. The trail will be open for planned event participants only on certain weekends.
The closure in this area near Fort Ancient is due to erosion of the Little Miami River riverbank as its course has changed to undercut the trail berm. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is responsible for the remediation which includes stabilizing the bank and building a small bridge over the affected area to accommodate trail use while allowing natural changes in the course of the river.
For updates on all trail closures please see the Friends of the Little Miami State Park website:

To avoid the fire there are 2 detours and both are extensive. #1: from mile 183.6 you can head north, then east on US 20 to West Yellowstone and go through Yellowstone National Park to the south entrance where you will rejoin the route. But fires within the Park have made the area very smoky. #2: from mile 221.7 you can work your way south on county roads, State Hwys. 32 and 33 through Tetonia, Driggs and Victor over Teton Pass into Jackson, WY where you can join the Jackson Spur.
