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.

Parking and Trail Access

You can access the Alum Creek Multi-Use Trail from several places. For more details refer to the Columbus Parks & Recreation website.


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

Excellent, Fun, and Relaxing

I have ridden this trial several times from Polaris to the very end at Easton. I am keeping a close watch on the construction of the link to take us on to Innis Park and further. Trail is smooth, clean, and well cared for. Plenty of Mother Nature along more
