Description Suggest an Edit

The Alum Creek Multi-Use Trail is part of the larger Ohio to Erie Trail that will eventually link Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland. This Alum Creek section follows a north–south route along a riparian corridor of its namesake creek, connecting neighborhoods, parks and commercial districts.

As of early 2012, the trail had three sections: one runs between Westerville (Schrock Road) and Easton (Sunbury Road near Walnut Creek); one runs between Innis Park and Sunbury Road near Ballyvaughn Road (by Alum Creek Arlington Park); and a third runs between Ohio Dominican University (Airport Drive) and Three Creeks Metro Park, where it also doubles as part of the Blacklick Creek Trail. At Schrock Road in the north, the trail continues as part of the Westerville Bikeways system.

Started in Franklin Park

We parked at Franklin Park and rode the trail south since the bridge to the north is under reconstruction and closed. After a couple miles, the trail is less urban and becomes a delightful ride. I liked how the path curves, offering new views as you go. more
