The Roberts Pass Trail runs from downtown London, Ohio, to rural Fairfield Township. The trail passes through farmland for 6.5 miles, although dense tree cover shades the route at all times.

continues south to Xenia, while in the east, the Camp Chase Rail-Trail
takes trail users to Georgesville.
Parking for the Roberts Pass Trail can be found on Maple Street at the trail's western end in London and in the east where the trail meets Wilson Road SE.
