The Ohio to Erie Trail spans the state of Ohio from a tributary of the Ohio River in Cincinatti to Cleveland on the shores of Lake Erie. When complete, this trail will connect four of Ohio's metropolitan cities, a dozen large towns, and numerous small villages -- all done on easily accessible, paved trails that are completely separated from highways and automobiles.
As of October, 2009, 234 miles have been paved of the 300 with 270 miles of right of way secured for trail use.
Along the way, the trail passes through rural areas, farmlands, nature preserves, and regional parks giving the adventurous a hearty helping of nature's finest. At the metropolitan perimeter, meadows and woods give way to exciting urban centers, affording the traveller a contemporary taste of Ohio's culture and arts.
The OTET has sparked the construction of dozens of other trails leading to it across the State of Ohio!
