Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail

My first long ride.

September, 2017 by wkarrant

I was able to complete the entire Ohio and Erie Towpath Trail over a two day period. First day rode from Cleveland to Mansfield, finished off the second day. A beautiful ride as the trail passes through woodlands, small towns and larger cities.

Richland B&O Trail

My trip in video

September, 2017 by brian_switzer

I'm relatively new to biking so I was glad to see how easy it was to ride this trail. There certainly was a lot to see. So, I decided to make a video of my trip and posted it on my You Tube channel. Two thumbs up for the Richland B&O Trail. https://youtu.be/0LHhB_RBfS0

Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail

Pleasant trail for hiking/jogging but not for a road bike (with thin tires)

September, 2017 by uresh.kuruhuri

I did a ride over a weekend on my road bike from Lock 39 trailhead towards south about 8 miles (and back). Most of the route is limestone and gravel but hard and few patches are asphalt (but they are very rough). On a sunny/dry day, you could expect some amount of dust on your bike by the end of the ride. To me on my bike it is an ok ok ride. However, a mountain bike or a hybrid bike with wide tires would be better suitable.

On the other hand, it is a very good trail for a hike, walking and jogging. The better side is, it is a bit scenic trail for walk/jog. The cuyahoga river runs through the trail and is beautiful to look at all the greenery. I am sure it would be pretty beautiful around fall season.

North Coast Inland Trail (Sandusky and Ottawa Counties)

Very Pleasant Ride

September, 2017 by pcturner0277

I started Labor Day 2017 in Monroeville in Huron County at the City Park below the dam. Its a short ride up the hill to pick up the trail at MM 50.5. The surface is finely crushed stone. The trail goes west stopping on the outskirts of Bellevue. Good signage helps you navigate to where the trail resumes at TR177 or TR292 on the west side. Try to make time to visit the Mad River and Nickle Plate RR Museum.

From that point on to SR105 just outside Elmore its nicely paved. I was expecting it to be all soybeans and corn but the trail was often in a narrow band of trees and made it seem wore woodland than farmland.

The small towns of Clyde, Lindsey, and Elmore were charming and very well kept. You can tell they like their trail.

In Fremont you have to take some public roads. Most are through residential areas. There is a very short section of 4 lane highway (Business US20) but the shoulder is wide and paved. The signs easily guide you through this section.

A very nice trail and you can make a really nice ride by doing all 76 miles from Elyria to Elmore. A lot of the trail in Huron County (Bellevue to Norwalk) is hard packed crushed stone. West of Kipton, leave the trail at Baird Rd and ride north on Baird then west on Bates to Lincoln then south on SR60 to Wakeman. These are very nice quiet country roads. Again the trail becomes a bike route through Norwalk but its not bad. Follow the signs which take you one block behind Main Street with its on-street parking.




Mill Stream Run Reservation All Purpose Trail

The above review nailed it. Not great for cycling.

September, 2017 by jsfarley75

I wanted to at least try this trail as it's one of the only longer trails nearby I haven't done. As AJW said, it very often clings along a road way most of the time. Very little as far as scenery, and lot's of spurs. The constant sound and sight of traffic isn't a pleasant "getaway" atmosphere. My visit was on a busy day during peak hours and it was quite busy. I'd imagine it still being quite populated during non peak hours as well. It serves as an artery for commuters as well. If I lived very near to the trail, I'm sure I'd ride it plenty. Though it's not a great cycling trail to go too far out of your way for compared to other nearby trails like the Summit Co Bike and Hike, or Canal Towpath for example. There's also many busy road intersections. Several of which you need to wait for a cross-walk light. Now onto the better aspects. It's of decent length. It connects to the Rock River trail, or vice versa, to extend outings. Also a spur heading to Parma Heights as well. With many picnic areas, it's good for a family outing that would include a lunch break. It's paving is above average with middle line markings. It's mostly flat with just some slight minor hills. There's quite a few non blind curves which are fun to navigate. Also some blind curves to watch out for. The trail is well kept. I saw plenty of dog walkers, and not one abandoned pile of poo. Overall, I don't see myself going out of my way for this trail again.

North Coast Inland Trail (Huron County)

rode trail end to end

August, 2017 by humpalong

Started ride in Collins and rode east to end point. I then rode west to Bellevue. There is a 4 mile road ride between the trails. I used my phone gps to assist me. Trail is well marked every 1/2 mile. Trail is well maintained. But no skinny tires. My favorite parts are the road portion and bridges over Huron river.

Chippewa Inlet Trail

Portage Hike and Bike Trail

Smooth. Chestnut Hill to Fairchild

August, 2017 by jsfarley75

First time on this trail, and it was sweet. Paved, wide, and mostly flat. This is a very easy trail. Follows the river and train tracks through mostly covered woodlands. Some industrial buildings here and there. A few road crossings that had little to no traffic were acceptable. My trip was about 14 round trip. There was a couple trail heads / parking areas that I passed. I like that I can get right into down town Kent as a destination. There's always something there that you can stop to check out while your rest your legs before heading back. Including Kent Cycle. I only wish there was a trail head at both endpoints, but I'm sure this trail will eventually expand. And I can't wait.

Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail

New to cycling, my initial thoughts of my time on parts of this trail.

August, 2017 by jsfarley75

I'm new to cycling and desired a safe place to ride. Canal Towpath is close to me, so I went.
I've done two sections about 6-9 miles each (one way). First time I was going to start in Peninsula at Lock 29 Trail head. Parking was over crowded there on a Saturday near noon. Avoid Lock 29 as a starting point. Went just south to Deep Lock instead. From there I went about 6 miles southward to Botzam TH. On my second visit, I started at Botzam and went to Lock 3/Canal park Akron. Most of that ride was great. Good trail, nice views and surroundings. Friendly folks in minimal amounts. Saw deer, Geese, snakes, turtles, etc. Only a few street crossings. The not so great part was down near the Mustill Store. Trail had detoured me onto neighborhood roads and a very steep hill for a bit. Got past that, back onto a trail, to then be put back on the road in Downtown Akron. I didn't mind that so much, but had my girlfriend been with me, she would have refused. Arriving at Lock 3 was nice though. There was a Hamburger festival going on with live music and vendors. I stayed for a bit to enjoy, before returning back to Botzam. Overall great experiences on this trail, even with the slight issues around DT Akron and Mustill. I plan on returning to do other more lengthly stretches heading north from Boston soon. I'd like to figure out a way to do the whole thing next season if possible. I recommend this trail do to its over all length. Many places to jump on and do short tours. A couple Bike shops along the way, as well as a couple other points of interest. Restrooms every so often. The Bike Aboard system looks great too. Lots of good stuff about this trail. The good far outweigh any particular bad that you can run into.

Richland B&O Trail

Cleveland Lakefront Bikeway

Great Views

July, 2017 by gleime

Rode this trail completely for the first time. Great ride. N Marginal Rd that "Rio" complained abt was replaved in 2016. It was smooth sailing. I rode the trail from Edgewater Park to Euclid Beach. Great views of the lake. You bike pass the Rock Hall, Cleve Browns Stadium etc. The ride across the Detroit Superior Bridge was not intimidating at all.

Mill Stream Run Reservation All Purpose Trail

Good For Locals

July, 2017 by ajw

The trail runs through a park with lots of picnic areas. It is paved, mostly flat, and a mix of shade and open areas. There is a river nearby, but you only see it at a couple spots. It is a good multipurpose park trail for locals, but it is not a destination for trail cyclists because it runs right along Valley Parkway most of the way. So you will have cars next to you. Also, you will need a trail map or GPS because there are several side trails and spurs that can lead you astray.
