Yellow Springs, Ohio
Yellow Springs is the home of Antioch University. The 1960's hippie culture is still alive and well in Yellow Springs. If you're not wearing a tie-died shirt, bellbottoms and sandals, you must be a tourist. The 78-mile-long (and still growing) scenic Little Miami River asphalt bikeway is just east of downtown. Bike 10 miles south to the town of Xenia. The three-story resurrected train station in downtown Xenia is the hub of 5 paved bike paths radiating in all directions through rural southwest Ohio. The village of Yellow Springs takes its name from a natural spring located in nearby Glen Helen Preserve which is rich in iron ore, leaving a yellowish-orange coloring on the rocks.
