Alum Creek Greenway Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Alum Creek Greenway Trail follows a north–south route along a riparian corridor of its namesake creek, connecting neighborhoods, parks and commercial districts. The scenic pathway will one day be part of the larger Ohio to Erie Trail that will eventually link Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland.

The trail currently has three sections: one runs between Westerville (Schrock Road) and Easton (Sunbury Road near Walnut Creek); one runs between Innis Park and Sunbury Road north of Bethesda Avenue (near Alum Creek Arlington Park); and a third runs between Ohio Dominican University (Airport Drive) and Three Creeks Metro Park, where it meets the nearly 18-mile Blacklick Creek Greenway Trail. At Schrock Road in the north, the trail continues as part of the Westerville B&W system.
