The Little Miami Scenic Bike Trail spans around eighty miles through Southwest Ohio. It starts in Milford, Ohio and ends around Springfield. There are quite a few entry points to the trail near my house. So far, I’ve shown you the trail at South Lebanon. This time I am going to show you scenes of the Kings Mill area taken tonight while on a sunset walk with Todd.
At Kings Mill there is an old ammunition’s factory called the Peters Cartridge Factory. It was built in the 1800’s and made bullets for the Union army during the American Civil War. Throughout the years the factory has had numerous accidents and deaths and local legend is that the place is quite haunted. In fact, the ghosts seem to be photo bombers, often appearing as shadows in windows. The property is privately owned and the local authorities strictly enforce the no trespassing signs posted throughout the area because of the dangerous conditions found in the rundown buildings. However, most of the site can be seen from the trail. There are also numerous buildings built into the ground where ammunition was once stored. A few of these can be seen along side the trail near the old factory.
Tonight, the only ghost I saw was that of a raccoon as I caught a glimpse of his tail before he jetted somewhere into the forest. It does feel quite eery around there and one gets the sense that many folks worked tirelessly throughout the years. The wind seemed to whisper their names through the trees while the river played a song as it passed up and over rocks and earth. To see more of my photos take a tour of my galleries.
