This is a newly opened 1 mile trail in Logan, Ohio the gateway to the Hocking Hills region of southeast Ohio. The trail can be reached from the parking lot at the county fairgrounds in Logan or at the lot at Aqueduct Park in Logan. Starting from the fairgrounds the trail is a crushed gravel surface and goes just over three tenths of a mile through the Old Town Creek Preserve a 56 acre preserve that was protected as a part of this trail development. The gravel trail turns into an asphalt trail after crossing Front Street near the Old Town Creek bridge. This portion of the trail goes just two tenths of a mile to the parking lot and entrance to the Aqueduct Park section of the trail. At Aqueduct Park the trail turns into a grassy ballast surface as you get onto the old railroad grade. The historic aqueduct arch bridge that can be seen from the trail makes for an awesome entrance to this final three tenths of a mile. The trail currently ends at the active railroad tracks with plans for crossing the active corridor and continuing this great trail already being discussed.
