Roads Rivers and Trails is Cincinnati’s family owned outdoor outfitter located off the Little Miami Scenic River in Milford. Our staff knows outdoor gear because we use outdoor gear. Specializing in kayaking, backpacking, hiking, rock climbing, and travel, we have an experienced and encouraging staff for personalized outfitting.
Our events celebrate our wild spaces, provide outdoor education, and inspire your next outdoor adventure. Serving our Cincinnati community and offering better opportunities in outdoor recreation are the building blocks for Roads Rivers and Trails. We are more than an outdoor store; we are your base camp to dream, plan, and live for adventure.

The return from a trip is usually just as chaotic as the frenzied packing. Inevitably, we get home late at night with commitments the following morning. Post-trip cleanup simply doesn’t happen the way we intend. But take a step back from the bedlam, slow down, and think about how you care for your gear when the trails have been trekked and the rivers run. After all, properly cleaning and storing our equipment will keep it in prime condition for our next adventure. If you’ve thrown out the care guide for your latest investment, here’s what I recommend for post-trip cleanup and long-term care.

Most people are familiar with the United States’ various long trails, but did you know the trail system here was the inspiration for hiking trails all over the world? These are international thru-hikes ranging in length from 50 miles all the way to gargantuan 2,000 milers, both island-traversing long trails and age-old pilgrimages.
