Cincinnati, OH

Bridge Loops

The bridges connecting Cincinnati to Newport are a quintessential part of the city and offer great views of the skyline. The Taylor-Southgate Bridge, Purple People Bridge, Roebling Suspension Bridge and the CW Bailey Bridge are all runner friendly. The Roebling Bridge is particularly special — a National Historic Landmark in 1975, it was engineered by its namesake, renowned civil engineer John A. Roebling, who also designed the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City.

Visit Newport, KY and get great views of the Cincinnati skyline with either Bridge Loop. Newport has an aquarium, several fun restaurants, bars, and movie theaters. It’s possible to put together routes of different distances incorporating these bridges and the the riverfront paths on the Cincinnati and Newport sides.
