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 and commercial districts. The 22-mile route was completed in October 2015 and is now one of the longest trails in central Ohio.

Several parks can be found along the way, including Innis Park, Wolfe Park, and Three Creeks Metro Park, where it meets the nearly 18-mile Blacklick Creek Greenway Trail. The trail passes through the Ohio Dominican University campus as well.

At Schrock Road in the north, the trail continues as part of the Westerville B&W system. The Alum Creek trail is also part of the larger Ohio to Erie Trail, which will eventually link Cincinnati, Columbus, and Cleveland.

This is a beautiful trail
