Route 3 and the extension of route 6 have been signed through the city as of November, 2017. We hope to have additional routes signed this Spring.

In addition, Kettering has a Walk/Bike Committee made up of residents committed to promoting a bike and walk friendly community. The recommendations from their latest effort is below.

Two significant regional trails cross through Kettering.

 Regional Trail #9:
 Miami Valley Trails Website Info
Making its way along a preserved rail corridor, the Iron Horse Trail is a natural oasis in suburban southern Montgomery County.
Regional Trail #19:
The Dayton-Kettering Connector (“The DKC”) follows, in part, an historic rail line that served the NCR factories in south Dayton. Today it provides a beautiful, direct, not-too-steep, and safe route for cyclists to get from the densest parts of Montgomery County into downtown Dayton. Along the way you’ll pass some of the area’s important cultural institutions – The Fraze Pavilion and the University of Dayton.
