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.

Parking and Trail Access

You can access the Alum Creek Greenway Trail from several places. For more details refer to the City of Columbus Parks & Recreation website.


Westerville Portion is One of Our Favorites

The Westerville to Easton portion is very pretty. The path is always well maintained. We've seen herons, turtles, a raccoon, deer and a couple of garter snakes. The soccer fields at Easton can be somewhat challenging if a tournament is being played. more

Definitely a 5 star trail

I have ridden all sections of this trail several times and enjoy the rides every time. The trails are always clean, smooth, and well cared for. I have had the opportunity to see several beautiful deers peeking through the leaves at me at various locations more
